Spend a few minutes discussing some of the things students observed on the virtual gallery tour—what designs stood out, what were positive examples of an effective product, what didn’t work and why?
Then help them get into designing their own computer. Remind them that they will present their product on paper (paper prototype1), so they should think about how best to share their ideas with others.
Also, remind them that they are working as a group—they are a team, a company, working to create a new product. Each person should contribute ideas and they should listen to all the ideas and see if they can incorporate them.
Use the questions below to help develop and design the final product:
What is unique about your target population? What special circumstances, or challenges do they face?
What specific needs or problems would you like your product to address?
What would your product need to do or have, to meet the needs of your target population?
