PANning for Facts part of ACM Pedagogic Resources:ACM/FaCE:Projects:Developing Student Agency:June 2010 Workshop:Activities
This presentation provides and overview of the skill of PANning and allows students to develop this skill through a walking activity. PAN stands for Pay Attention Now and the goal is to observe what is happening around you without any judgment. This allows participants to more clearly see their surroundings and how they may relate to issues of social justice and equality without having any prejudices from which to work. The participants take notes on what they see in the room, then learn about PANning, and finish with a walk around the building/classroom to test out their new skill. A discussion follows based on what they PANned.
