Last night we conducted a charrette with teachers and parents of the children who will be using the playscape. It was very helpful to hear and see the ideas people had to share – especially because parents and teachers use the playscape frequently and know many of the nuances of the site that our own observations may have missed. We got lots of great ideas and feedback, but we’re always looking for more. Those reading this who didn’t get to share with us, we eagerly await your input, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For reference, some of the things we asked participants were:
- What is a natural playscape?
- What would you hope to see and not want to see?
- What works and doesn’t work currently on the site?
- Do you have any ideas for the design, what materials to use, or about keeping the space safe?
