The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | Aggeliki Nikolaou | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners @JackieGerstein

Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners @JackieGerstein | Aggeliki Nikolaou | Scoop.it
Design thinking is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, conceiving original ideas, lots of experimentation, and sometimes building things by hand. The projects teach students how to make a stable product, use tools, think about the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and stay motivated on a long-term problem. The projects also teach students to build on the ideas of others, vet sources, generate questions, deeply analyze topics, and think creatively and analytically. Many of those same qualities are goals of the Common Core State Standards. (What Does ‘Design Thinking’ Look Like in School?)

I use the following activities to introduce elementary students to the design thinking process. The ultimate goal is for the learners to work on their own, self-selected problems in which they will apply the design thinking.

Introducing the general design process to elementary student occurs through showing the following video about the engineering process:

I think this is a great intro to design, but this is a tad over the heads of our K-2 students or special needs. We really need to break it down into one step at a time and not give them everything at once.
