I LIKE, I WISH, WHAT IF? Protocol Review: Sara Highstreet, Lakewood Elementary School
Protocol Overview and Instructions: Designers rely on personal communication and, particularly, feedback, during design work. You request feedback from users about your solution concepts, and you seek feedback from colleagues about design frameworks you are developing. Outside the project itself, fellow designers need to communicate how they are working together as a team. Feedback is best given with I-statements. for example, "I sometimes feel you don't listen to me" instead of "You don't listen to a word I say." Specifically, "I like, I wish, What If" (IL/IW /WI) is a simple tool to encourage open feedback.
Educator Thoughts: I like, I wish, What if? - I put together a prototype that included all of the children’s ideas. The children had time with partners to discuss their thoughts. Then they shared them with the class and I wrote them on the board. If was helpful for them to visualize a product and then make it better!
“Even the youngest of students are capable of thinking outside the box!”
Student Quote: “I wish is was a shark bucket.”
“I wish it had paint.”
