1-2 minute videos that guide you in feeling, and going deep, in each space of the Compass (older version). This is a picture of all the cues given, one at a time, in the videos.
CorpsAfrica Human-Centered Design
Two beautiful videos (here and here) about Garrett Mason's incredible human-centered-design work with CorpsAfrica in Malawi. Each gives a lovely little shout-out to the compass, which Garrett used as an over-arching tool, complemented by other human-centered design tools like empathy maps.
A short intro to the compass, one deep example and activity, many quick examples and activities, and reflACTION using the compass.
