During three days, the schoolchildren learned and experienced how stories are being told in the innovative and experimental learning environment of the HPI D-School. "The children received the challenge to use the innovation method Design Thinking to develop creative solutions that help adults to tell great stories", explains HPI doctoral candidate and Design Thinking researcher Axel Menning who led the workshop together with innovation expert Miriam Yasbay.
Both workshop leaders wanted to show that everyone can create meaningful changes – no matter what age, gender or social background they have. "The special thing is that children experience storytelling as something that connects people. Stories are not only exciting and valuable for them but we all, young and old, share this experience. It is interesting that children become Design Thinking experts who develop solutions for adults in teams", says Miriam Yasbay.
