MY APPROACH

UNDERSTAND

Children will be able to discover the why behind the value, name  and articulate the meaning of the value.

NAME AND ARTICULATE THE VALUE

After this we named and defined the value to the children, we showed them examples of how the values are shown by people everyday in real life. I broke down the value into simple steps, that kids could follow to demonstrate the value

DISCOVER THE WHY

I used situations from their daily lives to get them to understand the importance of the value in question, for them to relate to the value and differentiate between different choices.

EXPERIENCE

Children will be able to identify the value in different real life situations. 

READ ALOUD

We read out books to children and show videos, where the characters showed different values in varying situations. Children had to identify those values and how the character exhibits them. We further discussed the connection between values and emotions.

We spoke about real life role models with kids and how showing different values in situations have affected their lives. It would help them to see the importance of values in our lives. 

ROLE MODEL

DISPLAY

Children will be able to demonstrate a value in a given task.

ROLE PLAYS

I would assign a situation that did not show the use of a particular value and ask children to dramatise the same but showing the intended value. 

I would assign a performance task to the children that would require them to demonstrate a particular value in order to succeed.

REAL LIFE PROJECTS

INTERNALIZE

Children will be able to share examples of the values they witnessed through the day with the rest of the class.

1/4

1/3

Children would reflect on the values they showed during the day.

HCD is inclusive

The HCD process focuses on looking at the problem holistically, from multiple lenses (every stakeholder involved in the process) which almost changes the way we look at problems. It builds quality of the results. It helps us see the unseen - identify the opportunity.

Community drivers of the process

I believe community/People have the answers, no one has asked them. We are mere facilitators.  HCD prioritizes the lived experiences of those most affected the problem and hence are kept in the centre of the entire process. 

Builds “power”

When you are hearing the voices of those affected by a problem, you are decentralising power to the community and building their power. 

Innovation doesn’t need to be fancy, it has to be effective

Innovation should not have to be "fancy" it has to be sustainable and impactful.
