We live in the digital age, an age of connectedness. I was thinking about how many possible interactions we are able to make depending on the number of people in the ‘room’. By room I mean virtual as well as physical. I have used a simple model of if there are say, 4 people in the room, and every person were to interact with every other person, that would be AB, AC, AD, BC, BD and CD, therefore there are 6 possible ways.
As you can see the potential number of interactions, and therefore sharing of ideas, increases fairly dramatically from say, 5 people – the number of teachers in my school – who can interact with each other in 10 different pairings, to 50 – an expected number of teachers at a fairly healthy Teachmeet event – where there are more than 1000 different interactions you can make. Just think of all those ideas being shared!
