Conceptual Prototype

Create a conceptual prototype illustrating the proposed functionality of your tool. Drawing on your literature review and your fieldnotes, prepare slides for a pitch which argues why your learning goal might be valuable to your target users and how your design might help users achieve the learning goal. These will be presented and discussed in class.


This assignment has two deliverables: the conceptual prototype and your pitch deck (slides). Your conceptual prototype should be a physical object or a visual (potentially-interactive) document. The most important function of your conceptual prototype is to communicate intended usage, highlighting affordances. Formats which can work well include:

The structure of your pitch should roughly follow this outline:
