What a lovely insight - thanks for sharing, Patricia.
I'd hope this is transferable to other cultures, so it's great to hear that you've had success with a similar approach. Really interesting point about dot voting - I've seen this with grown-ups too! We have a silent dot voting approach that helps here, but it never goes away completely.
I *love* the idea of a playful introduction that gets kids into a creative frame of mind.
Really appreciate the comment - I'd hoped for more of this kind of thing to be honest.
I don't completely agree, but take your point. There isn't much more to this than making the design process more accessible (which lots of people are also trying to do as part of this challenge), but the main difference is that this deliberately attempts to target the problems that people have with voicing their ideas or trying things out. Encouraging activity is a big part of this, as is a real issue for those that don't feel comfortable with it.
That said, I think the points system is the weakest part of the idea, which is why I'm keen to collaborate. Would be great to hear any ideas you have about how we might improve this.
