Emoji Design Workshops at Ikamva Youth Centre: Lesson One
Who I am / what I study
Get to know students
What is emoji (what they mean and how they can be used)- ask first
-what are emoji?
-what do you use them for?
-do you use them? Why/ why not?
-what do you like about them/what is your favourite?
-what don’t you like about them/ which one do you not like?
Self expression- what matters to you/ how do you like to express yourself
Introduce plan for lessons teaching how to design emoji
Write sentences out of emoji- draw them if you like or just write the name in its place; eg: book, computer, puke face, dream bubble, beach, sun, watermelon.
In groups discuss what how you can make emoji about you/ what sort of emoji you wish existed.
