If you haven’t yet: finish your journey maps (labeled page 16 in the Empathize and Define packet).
1. Brainstorm through the storyboard technique. Do two 5-minute sessions in which you try to rapidly DRAW solutions (one solution per box).
2. Powers of ten (labeled page 18): Add a constraint that changes the magnitude of the solution space and try brain storming again. “What if it had to cost more than a million dollars to implement?,” “What about under 25 cents?,” “What if it was physically larger than this room?,” “Smaller than a deck of cards?,” “Had no physical presence?”, “Took more than four hours to complete the experience?”, “Less than 30 seconds?”. More power to you.
3. Read the Brainstorming Rules, Facilitating a Brainstorm and Selection in the Empathize and Define packet (these pages are labeled 28-30) in order to prepare for group brainstorming in class.
Spend 2 hours total doing the following activities:
1. Reflect on your own experience when it comes to what concerns you with your community,
2. Interview other people in the community about their experiences about your concerns and
3. Research online about the history of your concern in your community and current action being taken.
