This activity booklet was designed to fulfill the requirements for the Junior Product Designer Badge or can be used by frontier girl leaders to earn similar badges. Great for teachers and home schooled kids as well.
This booklet has engaging exercises that teach girls how to analyze what makes a good product and how to design their own, just like a professional product designer! These activities include doing user interviews, analyzing web-based products, and building a web-based prototype.
Understand digital product design: learn what a product designer does and what is website user interface design.
Observe a product in action: learn how product designers use observation to understand the user experience.
Redesign the product: compare their experience with other website products, and then sketch a redesign of a website.
Build a revised product: learn how to “remix” websites and make them better.
Create a new product: make a prototype of your own website, on paper and online.
IMPORTANT: You will need the internet and computer for many of the activities and is based on building a web-based product. If you want to just do physical products stick to the ideas in the blog post. The booklet does include the physical product ideas: the Remix game, IDEO shopping cart video activity and everything you need for the Wallet activity. But if you do not want to do any web-based product activities just use the ideas in blog here.
