Our students have spent several weeks learning about the needs of their users from the FDS. They are now ready to embark on their Design Challenge: to redesign how friends from the FDS make or sell their crafts.
In groups, our students began by brainstorming for ideas to design creative solutions for their users, who individually possesses a unique profile. The students found that they had to remain focused on the task in order to find appropriate ways to meet the real needs of their users, rather than to fulfil their own ideals.
With some encouragement, our students were able to let their creativity flow and they impressed us with a myriad of wide-ranging ideas for their users. They were certainly proud of their accomplishments.
At the end of the lesson, students selected the top three ideas which they will refine over the course of the week. We are looking forward to seeing the development of their ideas.
