Top Ten Portfolio Jennifer Gibson
The empathy journal really helped me reflect on my everyday life and how it is heavily influenced by how I observe others. When I took a step back and observed people from a removed standpoint, the impact they had on me was different because I was removed from the situation. This removal inspired me to be more creative and to be inspired by their emotions.
This Ted talk really showed me how to convey ideas in new and creative ways. Originally, I wouldn't have thought about using different mediums to explain hard to understand topics. This talk also changed my attitude on presentations and inspired me to step outside the box when making presentations.
The creative journey drawing really helped me reflect on my personal creative life. Reflecting on this taught me to be open to more creative development. After this course I also feel like I have made major strides in my creative journey and have developed a wider view of what creativity is.
The Ideo shopping cart video really exemplifies the 13 learning tools of creative people. From watching this video I gained a new perspective on innovation and how much really goes in to improving and redesigning an already established tool.
Working on the children's learning tool was a great way to practice the 4 P's and the 13 learning tools of creative people. As someone who never thought of themselves as someone who could develop a tool, this changed my perspective on that. Part of being creative is simply just being able to identify a need for something, and then filing that need.
