     29Below are suggested talking points for explaining how the workshop will work. Please feel free to adapt to meet your own audience.
     31Welcome! Let's start with a very brief go around in which everyone says their name and the organization they are representing.
     33In this workshop we are going to collaborate with cities around the world, including people in Palestine attending the World Education Forum, to develop a list of the 10 most important education rights.
     35We will working in small groups of 4 - 5 people. Here in _____________, we will have a room of small groups. As we speak, rooms in _________________ are doing the same thing.
     37Here, and in all locations, each small group will have one person with a computer who is in charge of communicating the group's ideas to all the other small groups by typing them into a shared web site.
     39You will all be able to see, via the projector, what all the other groups are entering, as they enter it.
     41Every group will have the ability to add an item by clicking the Add item item link. However, once we have 10 items listed, nobody will be able to add a new item. If there are important items not listed, you will need to edit an item added by another group to reflect what you think is missing. Every group is free to edit any agenda item, regardless of who submitted it. There is no ownership of ideas in this workshop.
     43And, there's an additional element: groups can endorse items as well. The items with the most endorsements will rise to the top, while the ones with the fewest endorsers will sink to the bottom.
     45And a final note on editing: be careful with your edits on items you are in support of - when you edit an agenda item, it will drop all the endorsers.
     47Are there any questions about how the workshop will work?
