CRASH COURSE IN #DESIGNTHINKING
October 1, 2013 § Leave a comment
IDEO writes that design thinking is a
creative process that helps you design meaningful solutions in the classroom, at your school, and in your community.
We took the d.school crash course as a team and learned about the 5 stages of design thinking. Having been through different iterations of the process before, it was great to see the impact that empathy has when team members solve problems collaboratively.
Our team is currently working on project_z which is a transformation of 4 traditional classrooms into 2 flexible learning spaces. So far we have considered the look and feel of the physical space and next we will consider software, hardware, teamwork and pedagogical solutions using the design thinking process. Mark Burgess has been very helpful in providing advice on how to approach and plan the sessions.
