Wk9: Ideation with Playdoh!
Some of the potential problems that most students would have are in the areas of visualisation of their proposed ideas. For today's lesson, what we are going to do is to leverage on the flexibility of Playdoh for ideation and visualisation.
For your challenge, you are tasked to design a door-wedge or stopper that is going to be used for a toddler or for a child up to the age of 6 years of age. The design should fulfill the following considerations:
Use only a SINGLE colour material
Should not have sharp corners
Is secure when placed as a door stopper, meaning that it cannot be removed easily without adult supervision
Must have an interesting theme relevant to their age group, i.e. favourite cartoons, shows, fairy tales, etc
Use the Playdoh to create a model of your intended design or designs, and sketch it out on your sketchbooks. Take a picture of BOTH your models and sketches and upload them in your ADMT personal blog, putting in the URL in the 'Comments' section of this post.
