Tangen College project – Slacklining

 

Day 1

What worked well?

Groups making their animal noise broke the ice. We adapted to the skills of the group as initially the activity was too hard

 

What didn’t work?

Exercises that had too many people just standing around not doing anything. Students started to get cold and then lost interest in the activity and did not have very much fun. Students began to swear and get frustrated at the activity that was too hard for them to balance

 

What would I do differently next time?

Begin with the easiest activity first that encouraged maximum individual participation. Also make sure that the activity suits the weather conditions so that students do not get cold.

 

Day 2

What worked well?

The weather conditions were better and allowed for student so sit around/stand around and play the memory first aid game. It showed some group dynamic leadership skills as some people delegated others to remember certain objects. During the mock first aid response exercise most groups fell into roles such as; providing first aid to the injured person and putting them in the recovery position, calling an ambulance, looking after the hysterical person

 

What didn’t work?

 

What would I do differently?

In the most first aid scenario we should have incouraged students to use a roll mat to insulate the injured person from the ground. In remote areas it would be quite a while before medical help would be able to access the injured person and laying on the ground for a longer period of time they would get hyperthermic.
