Week 3 has come to an end in a not so happy but necessary way, all in all this has been a fruitful week.
Fast forward we learnt about best practices, My favorite was “Storytelling”, I heard stories are the most common way that humans make sense of the world, I need to make sure my designs connect with it’s users in the most complete possible way. This is what makes the user experience more enjoyable.
The most important though is “Minding the content”, sometimes when designing we tend to use data that is best looking for us, forgetting that the real content the user might input is different and this might mess up the whole designs, so we need to pay attention to it.
The following sessions where more centered to things we use in life. Stress management, Who doesn’t need to know how to cope with it? This session has enlightened me on techniques to use to stay motivated and manage how I react in situations where I am stressed. One good technique I’m thankful for is the “Letter to my future self” this had me thinking twice and I’ll surely remember it always.
Second session was Critical thinking, it was the most fun, with the help of cool exercises we learnt how to think out of the box, analyse certain situations to come up with so many questions that would help you look at it through different angles to come up with best solutions.
Briefly this week was interesting, we learned things we’ll use in our everyday life and this is what makes learning worth it.
See you next week :)
