PROTOTYPE DEMO / WALKTHROUGH
We designed an APP that will afford each child the potential to grow into the “Beautiful Soul and Social Entrepreneur” they were intended to become. Our APP is a metacognitive one, it works to facilitate a child’s sensitivity and self awareness to their Five Minds…With Empathy added on. Our Photographic Narrative will reveal our thinking…
This is “O” As you can see, She has grown into her full potential with the help of her “UBU APP” Let us show you how:
As you grow and develop, your “UBU APP” will gently remind you of the sensitivity and nurturing that each of your 5 Minds require for optimal development.
It will encourage you to reflect upon the “Self” you are growing into…
It will allow you to see yourself through the lenses of the disciplines. It will remind you on occasions to “Think like a Scientist, Artist, Mathematician…This increased sensitivity to your inner self and the role you play in the world will provide you with the greatest opportunity to meet your true potential and to grow into the Beautiful Soul and Social Entrepreneur you were intended to be.
PROCESS REFLECTION: We Stopped, Slowed Down and Looked very closely at our mutual desire to create Beautiful Souls and Social Entrepreneurs of the children and students we are blessed to work with. We Empathized with them by taking their perspective and really walking in their shoes. During our journey, we came to the realization that all children are born Beautiful Souls, their potential is limitless…We Defined our problem: What we needed to do was simply devise a way to remind them of their need to reflect upon the self they were growing into. Our “UBU APP” allowed us to Ideate, transitioning from identifying a need for “a sensitivity reminder” to exploring solutions for our “UBU APP” users. Our prototype took the form of a beautiful earring that Patricia brought with her from her incredible country. An imperfect prototype…the nature of charrette design work, yet a reminder of the critical need for the cultivation of sensitivity and the potential it can inspire. Patricia is a Beautiful Soul and I consider myself Blessed to be part of her world. Thank You for providing us with this opportunity to grow and share!
