It’s 4.30pm. Your child is at the computer, and jumps into their live Peoply classroom. They see their excited and incredibly enthusiastic coach on their screen (they are waving)!
A few moments later, your child sees more young faces pop up on their screen. Yay! Their new friends from last week's class have joined. Everyone is here for the Peoply Great Minds Programme.
The coach asks each of the six young humans “what is something funny that has happened this week?” And importantly, “what is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?”
This image then appears on each child’s screen:
It’s the Factoroni of the day (a fun activity that each class begins with). Which animal do you see first? The Peoply kids consider. And, if they look hard enough, they can see many different animals in different ways... They get to experience how we all interpret the world differently. And, that’s a good thing.
This guy then appears on each Peoply kid’s screen. He’s this week’s Peoply “Great Mind”, Brian Chesky. He’s a human-centred designer and Airbnb founder. He’s done some pretty cool things in his time.
Brian designed AirBnB by thinking about humans first. Everything that the company does is about connecting humans with other humans and providing the best possible experience for people. Brian uses Human Centred Design when building new experiences and designing new products. The Peoply class are then taken on a journey so that they can look at the world through the lens of Human Centred Design just like Brian Chesky.
The coach gets the young humans thinking and talking about how it's the people who should be the focus first. This is how we create better ideas, businesses and a better world! Some “ideating”, “thinking with empathy”, and some comics later, the Peoply kids have designed dream meals and dream schools using the principles of Human Centred Design... Without even really realising it.
The class finishes with the coach sharing a simple quote from Brian: “People are fundamentally good”. Nice one, Brian!
“Another One Bites the Dust” plays as the young humans leave the class. The coach and kids are moving and they are grooving.
“See you next week!” 🕺🕺🕺
