The Thought

Together with David Marx, Loki English and others, I worked on this project for the schoolbook publisher Cornelsen in which they aimed to offer a digital layer to their printed schoolbooks that would support learners in doing their homework.

The Shape

We started the process with a concept workshop where everyone shared their individual experiences of ‘doing their homework’ in their childhood – what worked and what didn’t work for them? – After coming up with the idea of little learning creatures, called ‘LernCoachies’ hovering on the digital book, explaining content and supporting learning, we went through a process of iterating specifications, prototypes and mock-ups until launching the final product.
