Inside the trainee program - module 2
The Module 2 is now done and it took place during 1-3 mars in the new IST Home office in Linköping.We continued exploring and practising how to use creative research and design thinking, and our first assignment was to make sense of all the research and scanning we did before and then exploring ideas and solutions.
After the first module in Malmö we spent every friday in our team's doing research and writing scan cards. We also visited the Thorén school in Växjö for some field research where the school principal Katja showed us around and explain how school is like today.
The walls got filled with our scan cards, brainstorming papers and other post-it notes. The discussions were many and loud, ideas and information was shared. It was the perfect environment for creativity. We did prototypes both on paper and with lego, we created personas and did negative brainstorming where we came up with the worst solution possible and then transformed into a good solution. This made us come up with different ways of solving a problem and sometimes even completely new ideas. In the end of this module all the teams would have written down their new ideas together with some research questions. While waiting for the third module to start we are going deeper into our projects doing even more research and prototyping maybe even explore new ideas.
