The UX of Parenting: My latest post for #edu106

1 min read

When I often struggle to think about what to write I turn to every day objects. This is a great tip for new writers. 

When you get "writer's block" you are not suffering from a deficit of ideas, but of strategies. Having a few tricks in your toolkit can help any writer no matter her experience.

In this post I took a few images from around the house. Really boring stuff. Like a toothbrush holder. The real work of meaning making lives in the metaphor. I used parenting and the design concept of user experience.

User experience is about how a system or tecjhnology makes someone feel. The User interace is the tool otself. So through reification I superimposed this paradigm onto parenting. What emerged is a allegory of sorts.
