In this creative project, students will be designing and 3D printing emoji feedback tokens. The lesson begins with an explainer video, which provides students with an overview of emoji tokens and how they can be used to gather feedback on ideas, products or experiences. The class then generates a range of ideas about how emoji tokens could be used in their school and each team is assigned a feedback system to design for. By using 3D design tutorials as guidance, emoji tokens are created and used to provide feedback in various ways around the school/organisation.
