I enrolled in an online course to learn more about UX design methods. The class was taught by the design agency IDEO. “Insights for Innovation” was taught by Coe Leta Stafford and Jane Fulton Siri and focused on high quality ethnographic and contextual research, interviewing skills and distilling observations into actionable insights.

My project sought to answer the question: How might we better suit early reading materials to meet the needs of contemporary first graders?
