Onno commented on Design for Change

Wow. I do have to bring this to my kids primary school and beyond that to other schools in the Netherlands! Great in it's utter simplicity. It will also be very worth while to see how to apply this in high school, university, big corporates, government, etc..

Great idea. In addition to making something tangible, my experience with my kids is that they truly enjoy creating new fantasies, new stories. In these excercies they are completely unlimited by real world obstacles.
What if kids can jointly create their own stories. And augment their stories with drawings, sounds, pictures, video's, apps, etc. creating a new type of story (not a book, not a comic, not a play, but something else). Let the stones be ranked by the participating kids as well as other kids. And the highest ranked story can be published as a kids book. We can auction the stories to publishers.
My sons teacher just tonight asked the parents to come up with creative challenges for the kids. I now know what to propose. Will let you know if the idea is adopted and make sure to add pictures / video of the process.
