The first edition of the INEDIT Training has been successfully performed from mid February to mid March 2021.
70 students from high-school IIS P.Levi in Vignola (Italy) have been involved with the aim to increase and test the capability of future technicians to develop a new approach to creativity and to apply the Do It Together approach, using the INEDIT DIT Toolbox.
Introduction to creative design (2 sessions): the participants were firstly introduced to subjects useful for the challenge and deeply linked to the INEDIT mission, as creative thinking, design, teamworking and problem solving techniques. Moreover, these 2 first sessions introduced them to Industry 4.0 technologies, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Ergonimics, Sustainability and more.
INEDIT Role Playing game (1 session) : in this second part the students were introduced to the Role playing game developed by the INEDIT project and aimed to teach them the co-creation (Do It Together – DIT) design approach. The students gave useful tips and considerations to further improve the game for future dissemination activities.
INEDIT Makeathon (1 session): the 24-hour long creative and collaborative challenge, in which the 8 teams of students were provided with a toolbox of digital technologies and were asked to face the challenge “Build your SMART Teacher desk” starting from three pillars: sustainability, ergonomics and smart design.
Following the 5 steps of co-creation, Emphatisation, Project definition, Ideation, Modelling and Prototyping, the students developed their own project which were evaluated by a jury of expert from CRIT, CMS Group and IIS P.Levi.
After a long and exciting 24-hour work, the Innovaz1 selected as winning team with their project “The Comfortable Desk”.
The winning project consisted in a smart desk integrating bluetooth, wifi connectivity, a tablet and a smartphone application.
Designed starting from two pillars, comfort and quality, the desk aimed to improve:
- readibility, by means of a better illumination
- ergonomics, by means of an adaptable design
- visibility of the class
- sustainability of the desk, thanks to the use of sustainable materials
A great opportunity for the INEDIT project to get directly in touch with future generation, connecting them to the innovation world and further spread the co-creation concepts in a joyful and effective way.
