1 Prototyping is a way to generate new and better ideas…to help us move from
abstract to concrete… a way to improve an idea before implementation…a
method that enables us to fail earlier and often, but to succeed sooner.
1.1 What is prototyping?
1.1.1 Prototyping seeks
out, develops and

188.8.131.52 legitimises and contains
184.108.40.206 creates energy and buy-in around
220.127.116.11 Education principle
1.2 What can we prototype?
18.104.22.168 Role-playing internet volunteer
1.2.2 Journeys and pathways
22.214.171.124 Storyboarding a new car hire service.
1.2.3 Objects and environments
126.96.36.199 Desktop prototyping with
mothers to explore a new
in-school healthy weight
188.8.131.52 Testing the most motivating
way to present information
online – through paper

1.4 Defining your prototype
188.8.131.52 Using the prototype space
tool, you will be looking at
184.108.40.206.1 Core Functiolns
220.127.116.11.2 Key Questions
1.5 Prototype planning
18.104.22.168 This tool will help you with
planning the practicalities of
doing your chosen
22.214.171.124 What are the steps that are necessary do to the
prototype well? • Who needs to be involved? • When
should it happen? • Who should be responsible? •
What resources (time, money, tools) are needed?
1.6 Prototype monitoring and iteration
126.96.36.199 Use this tool with your team after you have completed
your first prototyping activity in order to: • focus on
learning from prototypes • explore your principles •
seek out interesting risks • iterate
