SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Using IdeaSpies in the Classroom

post-image

Students easily come up with small ideas (food, tutoring, etc) and huge problems (climate change, justice) but using IdeaSpies helps to set the right level of denting huge problems.

In the classroom, we get students to pick an idea from IdeaSpies that they are passionate about and then start to take the first steps of executing the idea with user interviews which inevitably changes and adapts the idea into something unique and personal to them.

What do you think?

Great to receive positive feedback about use of IdeaSpies!

This is a good initiative. Getting potential feedback early in the process is key to ensuring the students' time is well spent, given they are typically working within a semester format. It is also a way to get the students out of the classroom, which keeps them interested and engaged. The class I teach has a section of ensuring students are solving "the right problem", and part of that is engaging with those who stand to benefit from the problem being solved.
