About IDEO “Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.” —Tim Brown, president and CEO Thinking like a designer can transform the way organizations develop products, services, processes, and strategy. This approach, which IDEO calls design thinking, brings together what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable. It also allows people who aren’t trained as designers to use creative tools to address a vast range of challenges. Design thinking is a deeply human process that taps into abilities we all have but get overlooked by more conventional problem-solving practices. The design thinking process is best thought of as a system of overlapping spaces rather than a sequence of orderly steps.

The NuevaSchool Design Thinking A Brave New Experiment Historically, the primary objective of the K12 Lab Network has been to support educators in learning the five phases of the design thinking process in order to build creative confidence, solve school-wide and district-wide issues and teach students to be their own agents of change. While this approach has been hugely successful, sparking a design thinking movement that has traveled acound the globe, the K12 Lab Network Team wanted to experiment with what might happen if the mindsets which support the design thinking process were taught instead of the process itself. BIAS TOWARDS ACTIONWe’ve just led our first experiment!It took the form of a day-long experience for our d.home team school leaders, a network of eleven local Bay Area schools, all ready and eager to take their design thinking skills to the next level. After arriving and eating a quick breakfast, our participants were greeted by “Texas” and “Pipo” two juggling clowns from the Circus Center in San Francisco. Stay tuned…

Lime Design | Design Thinking How To Integrate Design Thinking Into K-12 Classrooms - Lime Design | Design Thinking Design thinking is a human-centered prototype-driven innovation process. How can you integrate the design thinking process into your K-12 classroom curriculum? 1. Craft a content-centered design challenge. Think about the content of what you want your students to learn. It might be understanding how a suspension bridge works, figuring out volume and density, or understanding a literary character’s struggles. 2. Design thinking is a process, but the mindsets that underlie the process are equally important. LD riskometer 3. One essential tool of a design thinker is an Empathy Maps. In the classroom, you might have your students work in teams to learn about the World War II-era incarceration of Japanese Americans by exploring and have them craft Empathy Maps for different stakeholders. 4. Use the “Frame” part of the design thinking process in a social studies lesson by having your students read primary source Oregon Trail journals and role play interviews. 5.

Stanford d School Design Thinking - Innovation begins with seeing opportunity in a landscape of challenge. HFLI sees an opportunity to instill a different way of teaching, a different way of learning. Creativity and innovation can and should become an integral part of the K-12 learning experience – the growing complexity of our world requires it. Researchers, businesses, institutes of higher education, and even popular culture, have issued a call for schools to begin to address this important objective. The Design Thinking process provides a structured way of innovating with defined roles, techniques, environments, and tools that address real-world problems. Design Thinking can be used by students of any age and by adults in the workplace. Partners in our work have included: Ford Motor Company Fund, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, W.K. "Creativity is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status." -Sir Ken Robinson.

6 Design Principles Of Connected Learning The Learning And Design Principles Of Connected Learning by Terry Heick In 2015, no one should be hurting for compelling ed content. Sites like edutopia, The Tempered Radical, Langwitches, Justin Tarte, Cool Cat Teacher, Grant Wiggins’ blog, and dozens of others offer outstanding reading on a daily basis to help you improve the things that happen in your classroom. (And this list is frustratingly incomplete–they’re just the sites on my radar that I’ve been reading since I entered education.) A bit more “fringe” are sites like TeachThought, Jackie Gerstein’s UserGeneratedEducation, the Connected Learning Alliance and, MindShift, and so many more–“fringe” due to their thinking that seems as interested in understanding what’s possible in a modern learning environment as they are what is. You could even call this kind of content less immediately practical when you’re just Googling for a lesson idea for tomorrow, but there’s room for everyone in a digital and infinite world. 1.

Design Thinking | Thoughts by Tim Brown Design Thinking: Creative Ways to Solve Problems Tinkering Hands: Students at a suburban San Francisco school work on redesigning a preschool room. Designers see the world differently than the rest of us. What if the same were true for the learning process? By applying the techniques of product design to education, they want to loosen the narrow, rigid process of traditional learning and show teachers how to tap into students' deep wells of creativity, encourage them to see nuanced problems from inside the very core of an issue, and make critical thinking essential to solving any problem. The k12 Lab has distilled the design process down to the following steps: Understand, Observe, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test. Melissa Pelochino, a teacher at an economically disadvantaged school in nearby East Palo Alto, is a k12 Lab convert. "Our kids spend their time trying to figure out what answer the teacher wants to hear rather than on what they want to say," she explains. PDF [4.1 mb] Download: k12 Lab's Design Challenge tool kit
