"I like the idea of taking this course!"
Creative Agency (CA)
Creative Mindset (CM)
Productive Struggle (PS)
Did Creative Agency scores correlate with any output or behavior during the course?

Questions 1 (creative idea sourcing) and 2 (comfort with ambiguity) had statistical significance as
predictors for the 20 circles
outcome (p=0.000 and p=0.0034 respectively)
20 circles: IDEATE Do Now

"I know that this assignment may be challenging, but I have established such
because I believe that you are very capable of meeting them."
"...Research shows that
challenges when we often doubt our ability actually provide the greatest opportunities
for brain growth. With that in mind, I hope you see this assignment as an opportunity to “grow” your brain and your creative ability."
One strategy to help in the deliberate practice of idea generation is to impose different constraints or scenarios that allow us to look at the problem from different angles.
Here is a list of constraints you could use to spark ideas. Which one of these would you start with?
A. Start with the obvious ideas
B. Think of solutions that would require magic (or non-existent technology) to work
C. Think of ideas that would be very expensive, and others that would cost nothing.
D. Something else not mentioned here
Do Now: Build to Think
Watch this video of a prototype created by Design for America students:
Now go to the PROTOTYPE & TEST: Making Ideas Tangible FORUM to share your ideas and see what others came up with.
The Fruit Buddi has the goal of helping kids get familiar with healthy foods from an early age.
Correlation between CM and PS?
we didn't find a significant one
B. What you would change in that space and why.
C. Is there a change, however small, that you can make in your workspace right now?
ten faces of innovation: getting them to think of their skillsets and ways in which they could form diverse teams
Forming "Learning Squads"
Redesign the School-to-Work Transition
92% of those students who finished the course belonged to a Learning Squad (LS)
68% found LS "somewhat valuable" to "valuable"
Students learn with and from others
Each student is able to create his/her own learning path
Students learn by doing and experiment moments of productive struggle
Grab a piece of paper and sketch 1 to 3 alternative designs that could address the same need.
