I suppose I learned the merits of flipping first-hand, having once taken the wacky (and effective) advice to stand on my head to overcome insomnia– yes, by a yoga teacher, and yes, it worked. Flip #1: When and where should learning happen? At its core, flipping the classroom forces us to question the who-what-where-when-and-why of what we do. Flip #2: Why are we lecturing anyway? Too many teachers have confessed to me that they lecture because that’s what they think teaching is, or they lecture because the students won’t read assigned textbook selections and they have to deliver the content somehow (ironically, transferring one boring method of delivery into another).
So, why do we feel compelled to do something that we know we do – let’s admit it – rather badly? Let’s face it. Welcome to the K-12 Lab wiki! Design thinking is a methodology for creative problem solving.
You can use it to inform your own teaching practice, or you can teach it to your students as a framework for real-world projects. We believe that creative confidence comes from repeated practice using a human-centered creative process to solve problem scenarios called design challenges. After using the process on these challenges, people will have another tool, the design thinking process, to apply towards solving real life problems.
