Design Thinking « Design Thinking for Educators | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Design Thinking is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education.

Classrooms and schools across the world are facing design challenges every single day, from teacher feedback systems to daily schedules. Wherever they fall on the spectrum of scale—the challenges educators are confronted with are real, complex, and varied. And as such, they require new perspectives, new tools, and new approaches. Design Thinking is one of them.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Look here for examples and explanations about design thinking.

Transforming Information Literacy for Today’s K-12 Learners Through...

In this slideshow Buffy J. Hamilton discusses the concepts of transliteracy, providing a variety of definitions, and then explores how we can use these concepts as a process while working with students. If we embrace inquiry based learning, then participatory learning and transliterate learning are a part of the whole. The words connect, wonder, investigate, construct, express and reflect are explored with many resources and ideas provided to help you start this process in your classroom with your students.

Angie Hammons's curator insight, October 19, 2014 11:33 PM

This is a slide set from a presentation on transliteracy.  This slide set provides a good foundation for understanding what transliteracy is.  It is important to understand that you can't take digital literacy or information literacy and focus on them individually.  Each of the different literacies are connected and should be recognized as such.

Utah's English/Language Arts Core consisted of three strands: Reading, Writing, and Inquiry. With the adoption of the the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers may ask how inquiry fits into CCSS or how the CCSS incorporates inquiry into its objectives.
