#DEEPdt Scratch Pad (see the trees 4 the forest)

When it comes to mapping out a DEEPdt challenge, I tend to visualize it in my head and jot a few lists down and I’m good to go.  I have been working with individual educators with their planning and plotting of DEEPdt challenges and as hard as I try, I can’t get them inside my head to see what I see (can you imagine if you could Oy Vey).

So, like I tried with the DEEPdt Challenge Mapper

to be mindful of questions I ask myself (and think others would too) when mapping out a challenge, I thought a “scratch pad” might be helpful to those fleshing and plotting out a challenge. By no means is this scratch pad a final draft or even close to it. I am not so happy with it in the sense that it is not as intuitive as I would like it to be.  Nor are the spaces adequate for “scratching” 🙂 Yet, it is a start and as I try to empathize with my User more and more, I hope to iterate this prototype a little more. One thing is for sure, I need more frameworks like this that allow for designers to fill in as seeing the trees for the forest is sometimes not as easy as seeing the forest for the trees.
