Look at specific needs of a user
Think about what might meet the
And fill in the following statement: user + need + insight
example, the User Need statement is , “I am seven-years-old and I
hate doing homework because it takes me forever to finish."
2. Now that you've identified a user need, create a Point-of-View question to answer that need.
For example, for “I am seven-years-old and I
hate doing homework because it takes me forever to finish,"the Point
of View Question might be, “How might we create a way for this student
to do his or her homework more efficiently?
One way to know if you have created an effective Point of View Question is to see if it can be answered in a multitude of ways.
design projects, this can be done through the next step ideation.
Use the examples below to practice how to generate point of view statements with your class. First, practice together as a class using the User Need Statements below. Begin by modeling how to generate a Point of View Question, and then invite the students to participate.
