Projects – Developing the Prototype

As mentioned in our session on Tuesday, this week’s assignment is for each team to develop a prototype.

The prototype may consist of:

  • A flyer or promotional materials for the intended participants or recipients of the project, containing enough information to entice them to sign up or participate in it but not overwhelm them with unnecessary details.
  • A specs page, as in the, some product specifications, containing detailed technical information about what the project consists of, what to expect, audience, etc.

This prototype will be presented to the extended community within our group so that they can provide us with meaningful feedback. During the second half of this week, we will design a survey so that we can obtain feedback that is relevant and informative for the project.

Please send your prototypes before the end of the day on Sunday to gabriel.rshaid@thelearnerspace.org

Some of the Most Innovative Schools in the World

Despite all constraints and rigidities in the system, which we have painstainkingly covered and discussed, there are some schools that are boldly embodying many of the elements in our vision of the future.

These schools are breaking ground and daring to challenge widely accepted assumptions about what constitutes good education. Visiting them, albeit if virtually, is always a great inspirational experience.

Please review the following school websites:

In the following form, choose compelling features from each school that you think are innovative and would like to see present in your ideal school. Please describe them and explain why you consider them to be innovative and replicable.
