Day 1: (Start with live session on big blue button)
- A live session to welcome and explain program
- Pre-recorded small video/interactive session via video conference explaining tools and process.
- In the common English session explain how to use BBB, matrix and mailing list (Netiquette can be mentioned here)
- Build a tree of knowledge wishes!
Introduction: We all know that our society's progress depends on our knowledge. For example, knowledge of making fire was a big step in our society. Another example is natural language. Like that there are different kinds of knowledges that helped us to grow. Today, we are going to do a simple activity in which we build a tree with our knowledge wishes on its leaves. Which means a knowledge that you think it needs to be preserved for the whole society. The presenter can give one example like, story of library of Alexandria, and give a short explanation like, the story should remind every human about the loss of a lot of ancient knowledge and we must take care and to be prepared to protect what we have.
Objective: To have a work which has some contribution from each participants. This activity is a light first step towards the feeling of a community.
Description: Participants give their knowledge wish in the BBB shared notes section. The person handling can read out and another artist/person who should share screen and add those words in leaves of a tree with a lot of branches. The leaves can contain one or two or more words which will be a particular knowledge that the person wishes to be preserved for the future of humanity. If someone wishes to say some words to the group it would be nice too which can make more interactions. The final image of the tree can be added to the website as a first output of the camp.
Remarks: Vector image may be better here for the consistency of images in the website. A person who is skilled in Inkscape could help here.
On the idea of controls in the current society
Make groups according to language preferences
Introduction: pre-recorded video
Note: Please don't add new topics because the already given topics are heavy. So the day they present we don't want their brain to explode ;)
Description: Divide the whole team into groups (5 members) and assign one of the below topics for each to read, research and discuss on the given block of paragraph/quotes/video. There should be at-least one organizer assigned to each team who can be with them in the process. Then on the fifth day they have to present at-least one concept from the reading material in any form: it can be a small video, just express each one in the group, a short poem, a painting etc. Only rule is everyone in the group should participate in the creation. The day they present their work/ideas, there can also be a discussion between the groups to add their experience on the topic (moderator should not be biased on any topic and should be capable of initiating questions).
