Co-designing stimulating learning processes for children

This research project, carried out by Industrial Design graduate student Philémonne Jaasma, focuses on stimulating learning processes for children in Ghana by co-designing an intervention that fits into Ghanaian culture. The fieldwork for this project was carried out in south-west Ghana, with the help of the AMO Programme and ABaCus, two organizations focused on providing learning materials in Ghana. The results of this research indicate, among other things, that western design strategies need to be adjusted to local contexts to be implemented successfully.
