Session 12: Digesting Feedback + Prototyping

Jumping off our lively exchange with Mozilla’s Mentor Team last week, over the next 3 classes we’ll be developing your design intervention ideas into a preliminary prototype of a solution that can be interacted with to solicit response to.

Today’s Agenda:

  • Process materials and feedback from workshop with Mozilla (20 min)
    • What did you learn about the potential and limitations of your ideas?
    • What is the main assumption you had that was shaken?
    • What user-info or further research do you need to do or find out?
    • How might you pivot the next iteration of your proposition / intervention?
  • Prototyping Methods – Examples (5 minutes)
    • Paper or Digital Prototype
    • Enactment
    • Installation/Object
    • Journey Maps
  • Define Challenge and Scope for Design Intervention (15 min)
    • Identify/articulate your team’s core question
    • Name the unmet webmaker need that your team is designing in response to
    • Set constraints: audience/technology/prototype method
  • Make Time : Rapid Prototyping Exercise  (90 min)
    • Round 1
    1. 5 min Decide on design intervention (product/communication/community)
    2. 30 min Wireframe out 2-3 key features/interactions or story board out 5+ frames
    3. 10 mins Feedback
    • Round 2
    1. 5 min Decide on an alternative intervention (product/communication/community)
    2. 30 min Wireframe out 2-3 key features/interventions or story board 5 + frames
    3. 10 min Feedback

Social Connectedness Finding

Below, considering ideas for community issued/validated “badges”.   Beyond institutional issued “badges”, a way for a community to contribute to and vote on the types of and requirements for being skillful in any proposed area.
