Things have been a little quiet here at the Business Innovation Factory headquarters. It is not quiet because there isn’t anything going on, but rather because not all of our lab projects are here in Providence, so our staff is a bit scattered at the moment. Although we enjoy when everyone is in the office, we are proud of all our experience designers who are out doing amazingfieldwork (We’re looking at you Kara Dziobek and Karen Jorge!).
At the Student Experience Lab, Lindsey Messervy and Jeff Drury have hit the ground running with our recently announced partnership with 100kin10 in their Fellowship opportunity. The project is little more than two weeks old, and Lindsey and Jeff have already made large strides in working with100Kin10 to lay the foundation for the fellowship. BIF SXL and 100Kin10 are working torwards aligning our goals to create an experience for 100Kin10 partners that will bring them together in order to collaboratively tackle the challenges of bringing a STEM education to students through human centered design. As the project plan is beginning to take shape, more detailed information will be available later next week,
Kirtley Fisher has been hard at work sculpting our schoolhackers.org Hacks in Action video series. We plan on airing the video sat the end of the summer as a back to school series for educators. Kirtley and videographer Rob Ranneyhave received some incredibly insightful feedback from an organization that specializes in video content for educators. Their feedback has allowed Kirtley and Rob to utilize the strengths of the videos to make them as impactful and inspiring as possible! We look forward to releasing the video series and hope you will enjoy them!
