WATCH AND LEARN
Bright Spark uses design thinking to solve authentic design challenges. These videos explain each phase of design thinking and are best understood when applied to a design challenge for your group. Print the complimentary worksheets for participants to use at the end of each video.
What is design thinking? It's about creating better solutions to the challenges we, as humans, face every day. This video will introduce us to design thinking and to Phase 1 "The Challenge".
The second phase of design thinking, "Inspiration and Empathy" or the understanding the needs of the humans who will be using our designs.
The "Opportunities" phase of design thinking is based on the data of the previous phase. In phase 3 we will improve our how might we challenge.
In Phase 4, "Ideate" we will use our discovered opportunities to further define our challenge to ideate all kinds of solutions to solve them.
"Experimentation" the final phase of design thinking. During this phase we will be prototyping and testing the top ideas from the previous phases.
