I have really been wanting to get my students involved in the ideate phase, but, over the past month, it seems I've been everywhere but with my classes. Thus, with only a few days left, I have finally been able to get a little time to work on this with my students.
I focused on my grade 9 and 10 students for this portion, where my senior students worked my discover contribution. I discussed with them what the guild was about and how the collaboration worked. I reviewed the discover phase responses from my other group, asking their thoughts. And then I gave them the ideate missions and asked them to see what they could come up with.
Attached are their responses. Some of them gave some interesting starting points to ideas that can provide a good starting point to develop something awesome.
A number of my students really perked up when I told them that I would be sharing their thoughts with people who value their opinions and want to factor them into decisions. Some of them were pretty open with some good insights into what they want.
