To do

Today we will hear your ideas, select and merge few of them and assemble 2-3 teams. Goal: by the end of the session, we will have two-three clear problem setting and a general idea for a workshop project.

Daria will introduce Edvard De Bono‘s “six hats” approach that works as an aid for brainstorming, certain type of thinking and decision making.



  • Idea pitching: explain briefly your thoughts
  • Rearranging ideas, finding similarities, merging
  • Forming teams – try to find a good skill balance for your team
  • Brainstorming
  • Opening a team blog (TumblrWordPressBloggerSquarespace…) – 1 blog per team
  • Outlining problem setting in a new post

Please add a link to your blog’s address to this post.
