Mark Willems is pedagogical employee in innovation and ICT integration at the Gemeenschapsonderwijs, in short GO!. A Belgian governmental institution that organises education in Flanders.
We personally know Mark and GO! because one year ago they came to us, at knight Moves, with the question ‘How can we provide the right tools for education in a rapid changing world?” Together we went on a journey of tackling this challenge. In collaboration with all stakeholders we developed a tool that changes the classroom into a place were every student can follow its own path, were students can learn more then the theory and were teachers are more like a coach to support the students in their learning.
Throughout the whole project there was a read treat, the vision of GO! to combine push & pull learning.
Sanne Kistemaker is co-founder of the service design company Muzus, and teacher at Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Sanne founded Muzus, a user-centered design agency 10 years ago, together with her sister Neele. Over the years they evolved into a 10 person service design agency that creates products and services by providing insight in the world and motivations of people.
One of the approaches they use is contextmapping. Contextmapping is a method that has been developed at the Technical University of Delft, and allows researchers and designers to map the context around a certain subject.
During this interview we talked about the opportunities but also the disadvantages of co-creation, the values of the context mapping technique, service design in education and Sanne provides us with some concrete examples of projects at Muzus.
