02. Target Audience And Pain Point, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy Apr 2019

02. Target Audience And Pain Point, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

SocEnt

This module will introduce students to the first key part of design thinking: understanding the problem. Understanding the problem encompasses having a clearly defined target audience and a well-researched pain point. They’ll find out how to dig deep into a problem to find the causes and issues surrounding it, rather than just settling with problems at face-value. They will also be able to apply those concepts on a local level and develop the beginnings of an SEV by working with these ideas.


04. Dead Aid & Theory Of Change, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy Apr 2019

04. Dead Aid & Theory Of Change, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

SocEnt

The theory of change method is designed to bridge the gap between the initiation of an effort and the solution. Using the Theory of Change model, students will be able to find a long-term goal for their macro-problem and work backward to find an entry-point where an intervention is required. Groups will ultimately finalize their pain-point, target audience, and a more specific area of research. In addition, understanding dead aid is necessary for creating a successful product. A solution falls under dead aid when it doesn’t consider its target audience enough or dives deep enough into a pain point ...

07. Pitching And Sustainability, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

SocEnt

It’s important to look at how a venture affects the world around it; ventures don’t exist in their own universe, after all! This module intends to go in-depth as to what metrics a social venture should look at in order to gauge how sustainable its practices are, both externally — with respect to its environment — and internally, with respect to its funding cycle. It will also help students become more comfortable with pitching their ideas, speaking off the cuff, and being creative!

09. Group Dynamics, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy Apr 2019

09. Group Dynamics, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

The Group Dynamics module focuses on informing students about inter/intra group interactions, while also demonstrating the role of an individual within a group. As individuals become a part of a group, they lose a certain distinction between their personal identity and their group personality, or prototype. Individuals become part of a social categorization and comparison, and require the skills of empathy and relations to successfully communicate with not only their ingroup, but also their outgroup. An absence of awareness of the feelings around them can develop the negative effects of groupthink, as individual ideas are unheard. As fitting into ...

A New Beginning: Hale Library Renovations Take Shape, Kansas State University Libraries

Kansas State University Libraries

The first four floors of Hale Library are empty. The damage from the May 22 fire has been torn out, scraped away, scrubbed off. Without carpet, furnishings, technology, books and—most importantly—people, the spaces feel cavernous and cold. Now, it’s time. We have been given a fresh start, and we’re creating a new Hale Library.
