Second part of the day will have 5 workshops. The aim is that during these workshops the participants can gain some more practical insights and experience what they've heard about in the first part of the day in practice. You can learn more about the workshops and the facilitators here.
Prototyping the Future of Work
By Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design
The workshop will be focused on Speculative Ideation & Hands-on Prototyping that looks at the future of work through design thinking.
Emerging technologies will transform how we work. How can we push ourselves to imagine the different possibilities of what this means for us as individualsas well as how it affects societies? Humans can bring empathy and intuition to the table, while machines can process massive quantities of data. Participants will be inspired to think about what co-creation and collaboration between human intelligence and machine intelligence could be through body-storming and physical prototyping in a fun and exploratory manner.
Learning outcomes of the workshop:
Problem Framing: defning a problem space based on prior knowledge, quick research, and intuition.
Insight Generation: articulating the needs and opportunities present in the problem space.
Rapid Ideation: being able to generate many concepts from pragmatic to wild, that address the opportunities that were identi ed.
Creating User Scenarios: step-by-step depiction of a context in which a new service or product can be used.
Experience Prototyping: use prototyping for early stage discovery and idea generation through low fidelity artifacts, role play or body storming.
This workshop is for members of Djøf. Attending this workshop requires a separate registration. You can do so here.
Life Design: Use design thinking to create the life you want
By Sooyeon Kweon, Life Design Community Korea
The purpose of Life Design is to help people live up to their full potential by guiding them to understand their current self and discover their yet-to-be-discovered values through reflection and proper questioning.
“I cannot give the answer but instead I try my best to ask questions that help people find their own answers by themselves.”
The Life Design curriculum is devised upon a 1-year-long study over Stanford University’s “Design Your Life”, an extended design thinking programme, with 8 facilitation professionals in Korea. The facilitator is Sooyen Kweon, a Life Coach at the Life Design Community in Korea.
You don't need to register separately to take part in this workshop, just made sure that you have registered for Future Tech Future Society! You can register here
Developing the most powerful platform to catalyze positive change
Cordelia Chesnutt, Chesnutt Consulting
Emil Vincentz, Symplistic
“Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war.”
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Context: There is widespread agreement that traditional social, economic, and political approaches have been unable to effectively deal with major global challenges (e.g. climate change, forced displacement, economic inequality). At the same time, modern technology offers innovative ways of connecting people around the world.
Problem: Although a growing number of people appear to want to take action on the issues they care about, at the local, regional, and global level, many do not know how to channel their drive for change into concrete results. Those who do take initiative often work in silos, without learning from others’ successes or failures. Some might not even be aware of others’ existence. The question is therefore: how can we coordinate and accelerate positive change on a global scale, using new, digital approaches?
Purpose: The goal of this workshop is to harness the collective knowledge and insights of the audience to get a further understanding of:
The barriers that are preventing positive change;
The solutions to overcome them and how to ensure successful implementation.
Prototype: The workshop will present the first rough sketch of a web-based platform with preliminary ideas on how to connect individuals, firms, organizations, and others with the goal of spurring and accelerating positive change.
Format: We propose a 2-hour workshop in order to cover:
(i) The background, content, and design of the platform (e.g. defining key terms,
such as ‘positive change’; which elements should it include;);
(ii) How to realize it (business case, dissemination, etc.)
