Great idea. I can see how several of the brainstorming and prototyping tools from IDEO's toolkit will be used by students in this type of project. Would it be more efficient to ask for suggested movie scenes and hold an online vote before the workshop? The online process would allow communication and team assignments before the meeting leaving more time for creativity during the session.
This program shows how fast we can learn, even the most complicated topics, when barriers and judgement are removed and innovative methodologies are used. All of these factors easily translate to the creative process and are key to building the confidence needed to solve big problems.
