Learn about the human-centred insights and actionable feedback a five-day design sprint can provide through the lens of an Early Literacy Project.
The Early Literacy Alliance of Waterloo Region, (ELAWR) has dedicated six weeks of 2017’s Prescription for Literacy Project to participating in 6 separate design sprints: a series of “unique five-day process[es] for answering crucial questions through prototyping and testing ideas.”
The Prescription for Literacy Project, in collaboration with Overlap, is on a mission to create an early literacy movement that drives people to understand the critical importance of early literacy and its resulting impact on our children and society. The goal is to design, test, and implement new or re-imagined approaches to ignite a passion for early literacy.
This post will outline ELAWR’s Prescription for Literacy Project, explain what a design sprint is, walk you through a five-day design sprint, and share the invaluable insights the week provided.
