Leap-DFC- Design for change- A problem solving tool-II

The DFC (Design For Change) session was continued in today’s LEAP class. The learners were given the problem.

Problem: School Canteen.

The teacher revised the 4 steps of DFC done in the previous class and noted down the points on the board. Then they were given the problem ‘School Canteen’ where they had to say their feelings on what all problems they observed in the canteen and the teacher noted them again on the board. After sharing their feelings, imagination of the dream canteen, their actions and sharing, the learners copied all the points in their note books.

4 steps of DFC

  1. FEEL- What do you observe when you go to the canteen? What is happening there? Who are the people involved in the situation? What were the problems faced by the didi’s, students and teachers?
  1. i) IMAGINE- Imagine your dream school pantry (close your eyes and imagine dream school pantry)

The learners

– Brain storm ideas to solve the problems

– Chose the best idea

– made action plan to implement the ideas

iii) DO- The learners discussed their feelings and their thoughts of their dream school canteen and noted down all the points to implement the idea

  1. iv) Share- Finally they wrote how they will share their ideas with their peers and the whole school.

The learners enjoyed sharing their views for DFC (DESIGN FOR CHANGE)
