Do you strive to guide your students to develop empathy for others? Do you work with them to develop collaborative and critical thinking skills while expanding their creativity? Do you focus on authentic learning experiences? Then, Design Thinking is for you! Design Thinking has been applied in the business and engineering fields for quite some time, but recently, educators have begun investigating the applications for Design Thinking within school districts. In this session, created for the Design Thinking Novice, we will identify the constructs of Design Thinking, explore the process of it, and work through a design simulation of our own. We will examine how it can be used to encourage students to solve challenging, complex, authentic learning problems while maximizing their 21st century skill development.
