Prepping for Field Work Tools

Our 6th graders are prepping for going out to the field to interact with possible Users for their Greenworks Challenge next week. A few tools they are currently utilizing in this aspect of DEEPdt:

  • Start with ?s (utilize this tool/Norm often throughout the process)
  • Question Starts (Project Zero Visible Thinking Routine)
  • Question Sorts (PZvtr + adapted versions)
  • Field Prep

I have been using Project Zero’s Visible Thinking Routines & Agency by Design resources with design thinking for the last four years and the more I do, the more I discover their tremendous value for the designers.  It gives them a chance to make their thinking visible not only about their User, but about self, team, topic, needs, etc.  Wow.
