  •  Design to Improve Life Education - Helsinki
  •  Facilitated workshop for High School Teachers and Students, based on Design Thinking
  • How to create better school environments in Finland by design? This was the topic both children and teachers from different schools around Finland explored in this human-centered workshop based on design-thinking processes and abilities.

    As part of the team of INDEX: Design to Improve Life, we facilitated and planned/structured a process for both teachers and students to work on problem solving skills relying on techniques and processes that designers use in their profession, but put into a High School teaching context.

    First came a workshop for Teachers, where they were introduced to design-thinking, "Design to Improve Life" and design processes. Here they were guided by us to create a test program with their own students.
  • Then came a workshop where students tried out the programs their teachers created, co-facilitated by the INDEX: Education team. Students went through a human-centered design process to come up with concepts that could improve situations in their schools.
  • Students came up with great ideas on how to improve the school environment, ranging from games, events and spaces for their learning environments.
