Hacking the Classroom: Beyond Design Thinking

Hacking the Classroom: Beyond Design Thinking | Education in and beyond the 21st Century | Scoop.it

"Design Thinking is a great skill for students to acquire as part of their education.  But it is one process like the problem-solving model or the scientific method. As a step-by-step process, it becomes type of box.  Sometimes we need to go beyond that box; step outside of the box. This post provides an overview of design thinking, the problems with design thinking, and suggestions to hacking the world to go beyond design thinking."

Melissa Ainsworth's curator insight, June 9, 2013 6:13 AM

This website has useful information for teachers and students about design thinking and interpretation. It looks at many elements of design and how to approach design in relation to technology. This website is helpful to give teachers some stepping stones and guidance as to where to go with design and technology.

Design in Practice's curator insight, August 2, 10:45 AM

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

Take a look at this infographic that was created by surveying over 1,000 students in grades K - 5. They were asked to identify their favorite fictional characters, the easiest and hardest subjects in school, what they want to be when they grow up, reading preference - tablet or book, top three favorite things about school and more! Drawing on the infographic were also drawn by kids.

Some main points:

 

"Less than 10 percent of MOOC students, on average, complete a course. That’s the conclusion of Katy Jordan of Open University"

 

"But with no negative academic consequences from dropping out, that information is less about the effectiveness of the courses themselves, and more about the reasons people might be enrolling, she said."

Patricia LeClaire's comment, April 8, 2013 12:50 PM
I've enrolled in two MOOC courses - partly because the topics were relevant to my work, but also to experience a MOOC from the "inside" as both a student and an instructional designer. I was particularly interested in opportunities for interaction (student-instructor, student-student, student-content, student-technology) and collaboration.

In one course, focused on a subject area with which I'm very familiar, students formed virtual groups around mutual interests and professional objectives, developed projects which were evaluated according to clear guidelines, and the projects were made available to all enrollees.. This course also had very active student-generated discussions on focused topics. What characterized this MOOC was the flexibility provided to the students for creating multiple ways to interact and collaborate.

The second MOOC focused on topics that were highly technical and mostly how-to with little discussion of why-to. Interaction among students was considerably less, and I was unsuccessful in either forming or joining a group (virtual or F2F local) to expand my understanding of context and implementation issues. While the content was interesting ( I particularly liked the video lectures and animations), I found it a much more isolating experience and did not complete the course.

Pat, thanks for sharing those first hand experiences. Very valuable insights!
Dawne Tortorella's curator insight, April 10, 2013 8:02 PM

This blog post does discuss some reasons why students enroll in MOOCs, but doesn't really talk much about why they drop out. 

 

One big reason - FRUSTRATION.  When a learner gets stuck and can't get individualized meaningful feedback, it creates a failed learning experience. I think we discount how important those personal encounters are in helping learners.

This article makes a good point.

" there's also a lesson in there about effective videography and editing techniques. While not all of the tricks you're about to see can be integrated into a product demo video, at least consider how boring this footage could have been—it's essentially just an athletic house cat—and how much attention-getting drama the shooter was able to wring out of it. By the end it practically feels like you're watching an Olympian:"

"Once upon a time, the role of the teacher in the classroom conjured up images and ideas of blackboards, rulers, chalk, and pencils. But now, technology is becoming more and more integrated into modern school systems—not just as an added bonus, but as a necessity to how students learn and how teachers teach."

An infographic that explores the changes taking place in our schools. Sections include:

* A look at high-tech teaching

* Now tablets are joining the classroom

* Teachers have 'em, love 'em

* Teachers use more and more tech...Does it help?

* Tech is used to teach outside the classroom, too

* So it's not surprising that..
