Reinventing Open Ideo for young people with a splash of fun would be a really cool way to engage younger generations. It could operate as the social media platform with a purpose for learning. Potentially incorporating it into schools would be great!
OPEN Ideo for Kids is a portal for participating in challenges just like Open IDEO, developing a profile based on activity that indicated high potential career paths, exploring career paths or interesting topics via tours, finding relevant mentors and creating community with other kids all around the world who are using the platform.
Over time and with improvement, more facets can be added to the portal. For example incorporating to do lists for "creative" activity that can be completed at a "design hub" (reference other ideas in this challenge for more info) or physical spaces that IDEO creates to help foster design thinking among young people.
Incorporating this type of space into school or allowing a block of time to complete some activity during school hours with the guidance of a "Design" supervisor might be a way to build profiles
Finally acknowledging different categories of progress and activity in the portal via the design quotient would be cool too!
