Whiteboard, computer, pen & post-its


  1. The teacher writes the following headings on the whiteboard for students to research:
    • The client’s profile
    • The target group for the prototype
  2. The students, individually, conduct their research and write their information on Post-its.
  3. The students post their comments on the whiteboard under the appropriate headings.
  4. The project group reviews all the Post-its and groups similar information to identify key points for the challenge.


This activity creates a base from which to progress on to the ‘Analyse’ stage and offers the opportunity for students to correlate and cross-check valid information from different sources.

The activity could be done using online tools such as Padlet, virtual whiteboard and breakout rooms in Teams/Zoom.
