3rd Years present their Design Thinking 'Fast Fashion' projects as part of Trinity extenDT2 research project

NEWS / 30 May 2024

Throughout the summer term all 3rd Year Computer Studies students participated in Trinity College's ERASMUS extenDT2 research project into Design Thinking with Emerging Digital Technologies. Through Design Thinking and using any of the three technology applications (ChoiCo, MaLT2, SorBET and nQuire for Students) - the 3rd years came up with games to help change the behaviour and understanding of people about Fast Fashion.

Fast Fashion is what the 3rd years have been exploring in CSPE classes this year. Doing this Design Thinking project helped students get a deeper understanding of how to use technology to change people's behaviour. After almost 7 weeks work, all the 3rd years presented their projects - one of the stages of Design Thinking to Shayla and Dr Carina Girvan.

A huge shout out to Shayla who was heavily involved in the research and teaching of 3rd year Computer Studies classes throughout the summer term. Thanks to Dr Carina Girvan and Dr Jake Byrne for inviting Stratford to be part of this research project. Thanks too to Ms Kenny, Ms Donohoe and Ms McGill for their support through CSPE classes.
