|Learning objectives||Understanding basic fundamentals about how the internet works, and providing a space for participants to ask questions they may have about the 'building blocks' that feature in other hands on sessions.|
|Prerequisites|| Big sheets of paper (at least 1 per participant) – coloured pens.
Facilitators should have a good understanding of how the internet works, and a reasonably high level of technical understanding.
|Methodology|| Ask participants to spend 10 minutes drawing on a piece of paper what they think the internet looks like, using (if available) a variety of coloured pens- as abstract, literal or imaginative as they like.
After everyone has finished their drawings, hang them on the wall in a gallery for others to look at, and ask the people who drew each one to explain a little their reasoning behind their interpretation of the internet.
