Reflection: Week 3
What did you struggle with today?
I struggled the most with creating 10 questions in the first activity we did in class. I found it really hard to come up with questions in that perspective. I felt like I had to decide first what my perspective was as a martian. I think I took too long deciding instead of diving right in and thinking of it more as a brainstorming session.
I also struggled with picking 10 questions that I thought were the best out of the entire class. The various perspectives and depth of the questions was overwhelming. The questions my classmates came up with were so creative, and I liked so many of them.
How did you make progress?
I felt like it was ten times easier to come up with questions after I moved around. The questions came to me so quickly once I walked around. I was very surprised.
Picking the 10 questions was easier with a time constraint. I decided to pick deep questions to ask. I liked picking a perspective first and then going in that route.
Do you think it’s better to have a variety of questions or having the questions reflect on perspective. For example, in the case of the martian experiment, is it better to decide what the alien knows first? Or just picking interesting questions?
