The project that I chose for Ignite week is Humans of ISB, and the reason is I want to learn about people in ISB. In the interview process, I chose three people to interview. One is my math teacher Mr.Crig, and one is a Sodexo staff, and another one is my friend. First I took a portrait of them and then ask two questions — when is the happiest moment in your life and what are you worrying about now. In the end, I chose to draw Mr. Crig.
After our prototype, we shared it with Ms. Rivera and other students.
One challenge we found out is how to stick it to the glass. We tried using magnets, suction cup, but they are not working because it can’t hold the weight of the signs. At last, we tried using velcro and finally, it can hold the weight.
However, we need to use the laser cutter. I need to learn how to use the Illustrator. It’s important to use Illustrator because we can tell the laser cutter to cut the letters and cut out the background. One thing I learned about using Illustrator is we need to make some of the lines red.
My idea is making a sign like “Do not enter” or “Enter” so people won’t be confused when there is a class in there. The second idea is making a reset map, so when we have to reset, we won’t be confused what does something goes to.
My users are the student and the teachers. The map can help students reset the space easier. The signs can help student and teacher know who are using the room.
The need I noticed is when I am going to a classroom I saw student don’t know where to go.
For example, people are confused when there are no one in the classroom and they don’t know who will go into the classroom.
My inspiration come from my coding class. They will put a sign out side the door so people know that are having class.
