We’ve been talking a lot about leadership in our class. How do we become leaders, what does that mean, and how do we move knowing we have this responsibility?
Part of this is looking for problems, and I wonder if we find problems in the stories we tell. This week we’re looking at the problems we can find in stories, and then seeing how that applies to how we can find problems in real life. Moving from there we can use the human (or empathy) centred design cycle to work on solving problems for all those involved.
I’m going to see how this goes, but I think it will have roots based on how we identify with where we are. Already I’ve had some students think that their problems live outside of the community and are looking overseas, but I think we need to pay more attention to the stories here in order to fully understand what’s happening in our place.
We’ll see how it turns out.
