February 26 I held a workshop for Hyper Island in Buenos Aires. The purpose of the workshop was to give the participants an idea of what it’s like to be a Hyper Island student. To achieve this we performed an idea generation exercise but I also talked about the history and methodology of Hyper Island as well as sharing my experience as a previous student.

In the end all participants got to present the ideas. We finished with a reflection session where the participants got to share how they felt working with the idea and we also had time to ask questions about Hyper Island.
