ITP Students in Startl Design Boost
ITP Students, Hana Marie Newman, Nien Lam and Susan Ngo will be participating in Startl’s Mobile Design Boost in San Francisco from November 11-14, 2010.
They will be presenting ByGone, a location-based social network where your personal stories become a part of how we experience history.
Design Boost is a four day bootcamp for prototyping digital learning products.
We’re looking for promising young innovators, to bring learning into the 21st century, to create digital products that excite and engage kids in meaningful learning. In partnership with IDEO, Startl is offering a multi-day immersion for designers and creators, hackers and coders, builders and entrepreneurs.
Boost isn’t about sitting around dreaming up pie-in-the-sky ideas. Its an intense whirlwind of activity, with lots of hands-on, real-world involvement in the design and product development process. You’ll be taking the seed of an idea and seeing whether you can grow it into an effective and marketable learning product. Along the way, you’ll be steeped in how to create user-centered, learning-rich and market-smart designs and learn the tricks that seasoned entrepreneurs use to generate new products quickly and cheaply. But you won’t be doing this on your own. You’ll be surrounded by inspiring peers and collaborating with them to amp up your creativity and rigor.
