Sample Activity

Card Match

WEBINAR LENGTH: 60 minutes or longer
ACTIVITY LENGTH: Varies
INSTRUCTOR SKILL LEVEL: Novice
PARTICIPANT SKILL LEVEL: Novice
SUPPLIES: Slide, Two to Four Content Cards Per Person
TOOLS: Two-way Audio, Whiteboard

Purpose: Apply Material, Familiarizing, Preview Material, Recall Background Knowledge, Recall Information-Existing Schemas, Review

Set-up
• Prior to the session, create a deck of cards. Each card should be labeled with a piece of content covered in this session. Content could include terms or images depending on the session material.
• Determine the number of cards each person will receive. This can vary from two to four random cards per learner.
• If there are not enough content pieces for unique cards for each learner, you can repeat content cards as needed.
• Email or mail each participant two to four random cards (you may want to keep track of who received what pieces).
• Create “Card Match” revisit slide(s) that include the following:

-Title: “Card Match” with image of playing cards or the scanned-in cards that were created.
-The content of the slide(s) should match the cards created. For example, content could include terms or images depending on the session material.
Insert pre-made “Card Match” revisit slide(s) in several places throughout the deck after a few content pieces have been covered. This is roughly every 20 minutes.

Trainer Process
• At the beginning of the session, have participants open their cards and read or view their cards.
• Explain that each card correlates to content to be covered. At certain points along the way, you will stop and do a “card match.” This is when anyone who has a card with a topic that was covered will raise their hand and share one thing they learned on the topic or how they plan to adapt, adopt and apply
what they learned back on the job.
• Learners should take notes on their cards as the content is covered and be ready to share.
• Put up the “Card Match” slide.
• Have participants raise their hands if one of their cards has been covered.
• Call on each, one at a time, and have them share one thing they learned on that topic or how they plan to adapt, adopt and apply what they learned back on the job.

Producer Process
• Participate as the radio show announcer reading the text chat or whiteboard ideas.

Variation
• To speed up this exercise, have learners that raised their hands whiteboard or text chat their ideas and as a talk-show host “announce” their thoughts to the group or have another learner do so.
• If participants have prior knowledge or you want to include information learned in a prior session, add directions that some cards have content from the past sessions and that they can share how they have been applying it on the job.
