This session is a follow up of the previous session in which children learnt about the interview process and stepped out to interview key stakeholders in the scenario.
Now, children will consolidate all the data they have gathered from Detective and Interview stage to develop a holistic understanding of the hotspot and connect the dots to reach the root cause.
Strategies to Facilitate the Session
- Each group can make their own concept note that has top 5 insights from the detective and interview phase. The board should depict the connections between their findings and the hotspot. The children can add substantiate their findings with data, evidences (photos, videos, material gathered from the field).
- As each group shares their findings, the key connections can be simultaneously noted on large white board or chart papers where all the information can be displayed together, thus making it easier for children to visually access to all the information together.
- It might also be a good idea to make a post-its wall to display all their information and then categorize it.
- By asking them many probing questions that cover different aspects of the challenge, you can trigger the children to do an effective analysis of their findings.
Things to keep in Mind
- In order to lead the students draw connections and identify the real challenge, you can prompt them to go back to the hotspot during the session. For instance, for garbage on the road as a hotspot, would lack of dustbins or people’s habit of not using them be the root cause?
- As the class identifies the real challenge, have the children write both the hotspot and the root cause on a big chart paper as a way of recap. This will help them get clarity and think if they have missed out on any aspects from the findings while discussing.
As the session ends, you can lead the students to observe the shift in their understanding of the opportunity and reflect on how they would have ended up solving the wrong cause had they not gone through the Feel steps.
