Red Dot Museum Trip Reflections

Can you find some examples of SCAMPER from the exhibits? (represent each alphabet of SCAMPER with photographs as evidence)





Put to use



Learn From It
Name 1 thing (per group member) that you have learnt from the designs that you have seen in the Red Dot Museum.

Lucas: I have learnt that no matter how dull the function/use of an object is, it can be made interesting and have aesthetic appeal.
Chen Ning: Sometimes you have to think out of the box to come up with innovative designs.
Xavien: The design of a product can be aesthetically appealing and be of good use at the same time
Keith: The designs there are great designs that the public has not learnt to appreciate.

Take a picture of the design that your group likes most and explain how it relates to the project that your group will be working on.
This is the hope tree, basically an upsized version of the dew collector. We may be able to use the hope tree as a place to chain bikes to.

1. Listen to other members' ideas in the team before shooting them down at the beginning.
2. Do not just sit there and listen to other people's ideas. Instead, contribute your own ideas.
3. Do not team up with your friends for the sake of it. Instead, team up with people that have the same goals as you.

3 keys to successful collaboration

1. Clear communication
2. Allow people to share ideas
3. Talk less, work more

3 Points to a Successful collaboration

1. Listen to the other members in the team

2. Think over the ideas together before shooting the idea down.

3. All members contribute.

3 points for successful collaboration

1) Teamwork
2) Listen to other people's ideas
3) Communication

3 Key Points to Successful Collaboration

Point 1(Do not shut down someone's idea)
Sometimes due to overconfidence in your own idea, you might reject any other ideas. Try to listen to your team mates, maybe their ideas are better.

Point 2(Be a team player)
Do not just sit down there and listen to your team member's idea, contribute something, share your opinion.

Point 3(Choose the right people)
Choose the people that are aiming for the same goals.

3 points for successful collaboration

1) Do not monopolise the group

Do not be the only one that talks. Group work only gets done when everyone works together.

2) Do not be quick to judge

Do not be quick to judge someone else's ideas. A "underdog" may have the best idea!

3) Have fun! (but not too much)

It is always better and more productive when everyone has fun, but it may start having negative effects if everyone starts having too much fun.

3 key points to successful collaboration

1.Clarify your purpose and vision.
Make sure your collaborators know clearly what your desired outcome is so everyone can work towards a common goal.
2.Team Roles.
If everyone switches between roles every few moments, the task could become confusing very quickly. Assign individual roles to avoid this.
3.Communicate clearly.
Voice your opinions but do listen and evaluate others' ideas. Communication works in two ways, not one.

3 Keys To Successful Collaboration

1) Be open to others idea
    Even if it is not feasible, listen what the other person has to say and not just reject his idea immediately.

2) Communicate
    If you do not communicate with your team members, they might not know what you are thinking.

3) Co-operation
    If you do not co-operate, you cannot get things done.

3 Keys To Successful Collaboration

1) Do not shoot other people’s suggestions down! Every suggestion matters. Instead of shooting their suggestions down, try discussing about their suggestion and making it better.

2) Participate. If you do not voice your opinions no one is going to be able to improve them or use them.

3) Co-operate. If you fail to co-operate, you fail to work together as a team with other people.

3 Important Keys To Success In Collaboration

1) Listen before you judge, think before you speak.

2) Be open and participate. (Don't be a wet blanket)

3) Respect others and communicate well. 

3 Important Keys To Success In Collaboration

1) Listen to everyone's ideas - Instead of going on with the first suggested idea, let everyone speak of their own idea and let the whole team decide which idea to finally choose by elimination.

2) Participate actively - Instead of sitting and doing nothing, make the most effort to come up with ideas and help your group members. Encouraging a group member who is not interested is not a bad idea either

3) Be open - Be ready to accept it when your own suggestion is not finalised. No matter how much you think that it would work, do not argue with your group members and cause disputes between the group. Try discussing the pro and cons about your idea and the finalised idea.
