A Framework for Brainstorming Products
Jonathan Courtney

Brainstorming artifacts from the future is meant to be both imaginative and useful. To help students thoughtfully consider what objects might fill in their future scenarios, teachers can use this structured framework for brainstorming product ideas. This process is meant to help groups facilitate design real-life products in today's world but can easily be translated to imagining products for a possible future.
