😎 Best Practice Sharing: Every template must have a clear flow
In order to make a template easy to use it must be clear where the activity starts and ends. There are different approaches you can take to organize your content in a user friendly way. 🍱
The most common way to organize the content is from the left to the right, the same as how texts are read in latin languages. You can also use numbers to make it easy to understand in what order to complete the steps.
Some templates are organized from the top to the bottom. This is similar to how you scroll down on a website, or a document.
Lineal or unlineal
Organizing your content in a lineal way will always be easier to follow. But there are other ways to organize your content that can work well too.
Place the activities in a grid to allow a free flow to happen. Work through the activities clockwise in a circle, or easily jump back and forth between the sections.
Organize the prompts in a canvas. This works well when you need to be able to get an overview of several different topics without having to navigate from one side of the canvas to the other. Be aware that this might be less suitable for a larger workshop where a linear flow would be preferred to help your collaborators follow along.
