DESIGN APPLICATION: HYPER ISLAND
This design project was my application to, Hyper Island, 2021 (a Swedish design and business school.) We were supposed to find a problem within or regarding the school system and design a solution to it that could be presented within 5 minutes. It could be self-experienced, something you have heard or thought of, the sky was the limit. I based my idea on self-experience and feedback from others.
My process was: brainstorming, interviews/feedback, sketching, designing, feedback, presentation. I came up with different ideas but landed in one problem; that a lot of kids have trouble sitting still throughout the whole school day and therefor have a harder time learning theoretical subjects. I proceeded with that problem because of the many benefits of physical activation and how affective it is for concentration and learning. It is also a global problem affecting many people. I interviewed teachers I knew from my old job (I worked at a preschool) to get their view of the problem. That is when I came up with the idea to create an online toolbox for teachers and students to get inspiration on how to combine physical activities/active classes with theoretical subjects. I did my research and wrote down a lot of activities that could be combined with learning and theoretical knowledge then explained them on the website. The toolbox was created on this website via wix.com.
METHODS USED: BRAINSTORMING, INTERVIEWS, WEB DESIGN
