Designing for Curiosity, with HyunJoo Oh

“We use curiosity as a medium, to study how to make people think. ” ~ HyunJoo Oh

Some time ago I came across an article about a new class at Georgia Tech called  Designing for Curiosity, The class was the brainchild of HyunJoo Oh, who has a joint appointment in the School of Industrial Design and School of Interactive Computing. HyunJoo challenged her students to apply the theories of design to the reality of kids — the world’s toughest audience.

So what did that all look like? What did they learn along the way?  And what might the rest of us draw from their experience?
