VIVITA Design Sprint — teaching kids creative problem solving

The process used with kids in Design Sprint
  • What is the problem you are solving?
  • Why is it important and to who?
  • What kind of feeling it should give if solved?

  • It is easier for kids (and adults) to start solving the problem if they have made homework on the subject — they have built empathy and understanding of the problem.
  • For kids it is easier to build solutions than to ideate — sometimes they just want to go for and build, not to ideate and define the problem. But if they do it, the solutions are better even if they first are reluctant about ideation they learn over time it is better to think first as they come up with better solutions this way :)
  • We have noticed that smaller kids need more support to work together as they prefer to build their own prototypes. For them, it’s important what they have done and whose idea it was (7–8-year-olds). As for older kids working and prototyping together comes easier (9–10-year-olds) — they are more willing to combine ideas.
The workshop was run by Halina & Eva Liisa
