    πŸ€” Reflection question

    How might the prototype & test stage help you with overcoming a fear of failure or challenging your assumptions about what is β€˜right’?

    Destiney's Answer

    In this stage it helps us understand the risks and the successes that can come out of this idea. Our team learned that even with the Prototype and Testing stage our idea will not be perfect even after testing it over and over.

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    How might ideation help you develop your active listening skills to brainstorm and reflect on ideas effectively with your team?

    Destiney's Answer

    throughout the ideation stage my team and I gathered to brainstorm multiple different ideas. it was a struggle for my team and I to come up with new ideas and how to fit those ideas into the ideate canvas. We listened to one another and let everyone speak their own ideas as we filled in the template which turned into a great way to improve the teams active listening skills.

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    How might you explain the value of you having a systems-thinking mindset when attempting to define and understand a complex problem?

    Destiney's Answer

    The value of this mindset helps us understand and solve the issue we have as well as many other issues that may come forth when working on our issue. It looks at different aspects of each particular problem and all of its connected issues.

    πŸ€” Reflection question

    What did you personally learn about the process of creating your team canvass?

    Destiney's Answer

    In the process of doing our team canvas I learned that a lot of our groups members share the same values and strengths. And that to make things flow everyone needs a chance to pitch their ideas and thoughts. It was a really fun exercise and me and my teammates had a blast doing it together.

    After completing the Mobius Strip exercise, what do you feel are next steps towards contributing to the community you care about?

    Destiney's Answer

    The Mobius strip helps outline how we can continue change in our community. I feel that the next steps would be to use our strengths to try and identify more serious problem areas within our community.
