In this session you will learn hands-on techniques to teach pupils how to paper prototype in order to introduce UX Design to children as young as five. This session also comes with a huge amount of inspiration to get UX Designers volunteering for educational IT programmes where the emphasis is put on programming but not much is being said about designing. You can think of this session as an inspirational talk with paper prototyping techniques as a give away.
