Our team, WhySoShy is developing an app to help shy people have the confidence to present in front of an audience. The app does this by displaying the written speech one word at a time and above the word is a photo of the shy presenter's best friend. The idea is the shy presenter can focus on the words and the photo of her friend instead of the big crowd of people listening. That relaxes the shy speaker and helps them make a speak with confidence.

Transcript

  • 1. WhySoShy Year 7 Charlie, Lauren, and Leah
  • 2. Who? Shy Year 7 Students What? We are worried about presenting in front of big audiences at this year’s AppsForGood finals (stage fright) When? 23 June 2014 Where? At the Barbican Why? We want to present our elevator pitch, but we get very nervous in front of people.
  • 3. Problem: Lauren is full of great ideas and is very smart, but she get very quiet and shy when talking to others (especially with a big audience) How can she do her elevator pitch?
  • 4. Question: How can someone who is shy and has stage fright talk in front of a large group of people?
  • 5. Key Insight Statement: You can practice your speech, but it is different when you are in front of a crowd. You can talk in a group, but the shy students want to be able to contribute. The mind work in strange ways look at the “King’s Speech”, an app that relaxes shy speakers and helps them present would be great.
  • 6. Mini Elevator Pitch: Our team, WhySoShy is developing an app to help shy people have the confidence to present in front of an audience. The app does this by displaying the written speech one word at a time and above the word is a photo of the shy presenter's best friend. The idea is the shy presenter can focus on the words and the photo of her friend instead of the big crowd of people listening. That relaxes the shy speaker and helps them make a speak with confidence.
  • 7. User Profiles: Carla: one of my old friend’s is Carla she can speak to people and she doesn’t go red until she gets told to stand up and say what she wrote for something. So, she is only shy when she gets told to do a speech. That is because she doesn’t really like doing that unless she is really confident on topic. Back in primary she loved asking if she could say what she wrote on her white board and her book and she always asked the teacher if she could read with her best friend. So, she can speak in front of people (especially with her best friend). We both just love reading!
  • 8. Competitors that already exist in the market. This app using relaxation tricks to overcome stage fright
  • 9. How the app will help with stage fright and shyness…
  • 10. How the app will help with stage fright and shyness…
  • 11. Feasibility: This is a very easy app to make. The first version only needs… 1. Take a photo and record the friends details. 2. Import or type a speech and display it only word at a time. 3. Select and play speech at chosen speed
  • 12. Customer Pledges: All my friends said they would get the app, but no one really wants to pay for it.
  • 13. Marketing Strategy: This is a simple app that could be used by anyone who needs to speak in front of people. We plan to promote this app by offering it to the 2015 Apps for Good finalists. (They are going to need it!) We may also encourage politicians, CEOs, and others to use the app at their next speaking event.
  • 14. Wildcard: We had lots of help with our idea from parents, teachers, students, and the Apps for Good Community. Thank you all.
