Module 9 Gallery walk Activity 2:Exhibits

In this exercise we will use the blog post comments as a backchannel. Just click on the comments link at the bottom to reply to this discussion.

1.  Examine the Exhibit alongside critically. In the class backchannel:
  • What is the exhibit about? 
  • Describe how it makes you feel.
  • Do you think that #feesmustfall? 
  • Reply to at least one other person in the discussion thread, opposing their opinion. 
2. Scan the QR code of the exhibit using your Quickmark app. Does the video portray the situation fairly? 
3. What format was more effective, the video or the photo?


A Gallery walk consist of Exhibits that should challenge the observer to think about what is shared in the exhibit. A good exhibit therefore should:
  • Impart information and knowledge
  • Solicit feelings (positive/negative)
  • Stimulate good discussion
  • Encourage critical thinking
Was this exhibit a well chosen example?

    This image represents an uprising at universities in South Africa in 2016 about the high fees that students are expected to pay - students want free higher education

  7. Qu: Do you think that #feesmustfall?
    Yes, I do agree with it but I recognise that it can't be immediate. It could be started by the government and worked at over time.

    2. Don't you think that it should fall for those who are poor only. Is it OK to subsidise the rich as well?

  8. 3.I feel that #fees must fall especially for the poor students. Those who can afford should soldier on. This approach may reduce the 'dependency syndrome'

  13. Qu: Scan the QR code of the exhibit using your Quickmark app. Does the video portray the situation fairly?
    I think the video shows the students'side very well...but I feel it should also show how difficult this would be to introduce in a country where so few people pay tax and where the government isn't creating enough job opportunities. This would give one the 'whole' current picture.

  14. Qu: What format was more effective, the video or the photo? I thin the video as it shows the action and how widespread the uprising was. Also, the video is short so people will be interested in watching it.

  16. At whose expense should #feesmustfall? Maybe that should be a rephrase of the question. Yes #feesmustfall if there is commitment from all sectors of the economy to cut a slice from their budget to fund tertiary education especially for the indigent students and the less fortunate.

  17. Its concerns me, the country leaders and its citizenry are neglecting the gist of Ubuntu practice, which used to consciously and unconciously influence our nations, to dominate the concept of the richer that get richer while the poor remains in the same situation.
