Since every time we do this, people seem to like it (well mostly), and since it’s simple, I thought I would post some instructions.This was “invented” (I’m sure other people did something like it in the past, and I know lots do it now) at the Dancing the Virtual event in 2006.The service is based on an old Jewish tradition: helping young, single Jews meet others in the faith.This tradition of creating a shidduch, or a match, called for Jewish singles to be kept in the dark about each other until the time for matchmaking came.eg someone behind a corner of two desks can be hard to hear) 3. people often want to just drift in, or form three, or move with their friends etc. People have to talk to each other—and they talk about the concept (it could be a question etc). If you go round and just listen in (and listen in, don’t join in as facilitator) … I just ask what they talked about and space it out on the whiteboard.All of these mean that the whole thing breaks down, and more than two means that at least one often ends up out of the discussion. Tell everyone that when you say “freeze” or whatever, everyone has to stop talking immediately and freeze (like “chasings”). They can’t talk about what they were doing on the weekend, what star sign that are, etc etc. And often we choose the less obvious (“minor”) concepts. After 3 minutes say “freeze” (this will at least in part stop you going a little crazy trying to make people cease talking otherwise) 8. But here again I try to make them the centre of attention. but I tend to write down all the things they say on the whiteboard.
make sure that people have enough space to get close enough to talk .. People should develop the concept during repetition, and often they might report on the previous conversation. So for example, a string of concepts from the one reading, or a string of related issues, maybe from example out to larger questions (or vice versa). Finally (obviously) it is useful to get feedback in the larger class.
As a psychologist, I have always found the concept of speed dating fascinating.
In fact, some years ago, I decided to try it myself.
