d.school’s Virtual Crash Course from Stanford
Basically, our task was to "redesign the gift-giving experience for our partner". We interviewed each other, wrote a problem statement, generated radical alternatives, shared for feedback, refined our idea and built a prototype (all these steps are easily outlined in the handout on their site). It was fun to get to know a new person in the DEEP Learning Conference and really helpful to have someone design a solution for me that I did not even know I was looking for. Now that. . . is hacking! We took something that already existed and made it better. Simple, positive and effective. You know what. . . it was even fun!
