PM4: From a Blank Piece of Paper to a Game: Using Design Thinking to Question Data and Reverse Engineer Gaming Environments.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Scientists, engineers, social scientists, and humanists around the world use advanced digital resources and services everyday. Things like supercomputers, data collection, and innovative technologies are critical to the success of those researchers, who use them to make our lives healthier, safer, and better. In this workshop participants will explore the relationship between information and experience. Through the use of questioning we will document the ways that we understand material, make information concrete. From this perspective we will propose possible gaming environments to facilitate understanding. Participants will bring the data from which we will participate in a collaborative brainstorming experience. In the workshop participants will analyze, define, ideate and prototype possible experiences.
