If you are taking part in the Story:Web co-design workshops, thank you! (If not, you can find out how to take part here ). We’ll be sharing our progress here on the ‘blog. This post explains what we’ll be doing in the first workshop and gives you some simple tasks to do before it.
Once you know more about the project, you need to formally agree to take part.
Our first workshop is part of the ‘discovery phase’ of co-design, where together we’ll explore the challenges and opportunities for making sense of environmental issues online and in museums.
During the workshop we’ll:
There a few things you can do before workshop 1 that will help us make the most out of it.
Please fill in a short online questionnaire about you, your current online habits, and your expectations for the project. (Please do this even if you have already provided some of this information.)
Find an example of something you have seen online about an environmental issue you are interested in or concerned about. Copy a link to it and/or take a screen shot of it and write one or two sentences explaining why you chose it – what is interesting or concerning about it? We’ll then challenge Dan Gordon, one of the Museum’s curators, to find museum objects relating to these issues that we’ll show in the first workshop.
You can do this by yourself or with others in your school or college group. Please email your issue(s) and sentences to me (firstname.lastname@example.org ) by Tuesday 18th January.
If you need some inspiration, The Great North Museum: Hancock has produced some videos about environmental change:
Find an example of something you have seen online (including on social media) that has either made you think differently about something or understand something better. This doesn’t have to be an environmental issue. Take a screenshot or copy a link to it. You can find one example by yourself or come up with a few examples with others in your school or college group. We’ll share and discuss these at the first workshop.
If you have time, you can:
