About a month ago, I took a storytelling workshop online through IDEO U. My goal was to find a more compelling way to share the results from 9 months of implementing our technology pipeline. There’s no bullet points, bar charts or executive summary. My hope is that you get the essence of what we tried to do, why, and where we are headed next.
My greatest intention with this project was to end up with an empathic design that reached the kids who needed it the most. To do this, every step centers around starting early with play, building relationships, and having coaches “nudge” and engage in ways that are meaningful to the student (not to the school). We also had to understand an uncomfortable reality in our community. Because sometimes even though we all live in the same city, we still live in two worlds.
