Thanks to Lori Lisai and Sydney Cop for sharing with the Lamoille faculty our experience working with the students on the redesign work yesterday. And a special thanks to Chris Bologna for taking the time to convert the words on the students brainstorm/ideate newsprint sheets into a wordle.--

Crossett follow up meeting

We reconvened the crew today to:

  • Review the design process
  • Revisit our ideas
  • Recruit for MGI
Yes it was a very "R" heavy gathering!

We used these slides to guide us through our 25 minutes. 

And we categorized our debrief from last time to recognize that we had some design principles in motion, along with some plans for rolling out the redesigned prototype for next school year. Here's our original poster that we color coded today:

Looks like we have some interest in MGI!

Crossett debrief and next steps

After the bus returned, the Crossett crew took some time to think together about next steps.

These grade 5-6 students worked hard during the ideate session. They also consolidated their best ideas by starring them.
