Guiding Questions for the design of an educational experience in the year 2025
1) What was one of the most valuable and memorable learning experience in your life? If you distill it down to one moment or one feeling what can you take away from it? How can you include this in your design?
2) What are the problems you see in the current classes, schools, education policy, etc., as a learner, teacher, administrator and parent?
3) What is the role of each of the stakeholders in your design (ex. What is the role of a teacher in 2025? Will the role be different? If so, how?
4) What is your educational mandate?
5) What is the learning experience? (ex. Is gamification used? What is the student-teacher-community relationship? How does the school provide the infrastructure and the supports for learning? )
6) How will learning be assessed? (ex. How could learning analytics be used?)
