How to Bring Design Thinking to Your School for Free (Without Hiring a Fancy Consultant)

How to Bring Design Thinking to Your School for Free (Without Hiring a Fancy Consultant) | Education First!, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Futurism | Scoop.it

by Mary Jo Madda 

But as my colleague Leonard Medlock says, you have to be careful when finding free alternatives online, because it can lead to a “proliferation of design thinking sans any notions of empathy or learning from failure.”

Keep in mind, design thinking--problem discovery and solution generation using empathy and rapid prototyping, described as “human-centered design”--isn’t something you can just implement in a classroom lesson plan with your students right away.

 

You’ve got to work on the skills and mindsets yourself first, and develop an openness to iteration and a willingness to be truly honest.

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking | Education First!, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Futurism | Scoop.it

"Big idea: Teaching kids to ask smart questions on their own

A four-year-old asks on average about 400 questions per day, and an adult hardly asks any. Our school system is structured around rewards for regurgitating the right answer, and not asking smart questions – in fact, it discourages asking questions. With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?"

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, February 9, 2015 11:11 AM

Anything that gives students a chance to ask their own questions is a good idea in my opinion.  When the questions invoke critical thinking, it's a double bonus!  Also, writing these questions on any pre-made box would work.  No need to be crafty with scissors and tape.

Simon Awuyo's curator insight, February 11, 2015 2:04 PM

The student teachers need these tips to help them cultivate skills of asking probing questions to become better teachers tomorrow.

Pangaea and Plate Tectonics

The supercontinent Pangaea, with its connected South America and Africa, broke apart 200 million years ago. But the continents haven't stopped shifting -- the tectonic plates beneath our feet (in Earth's two top layers, the lithosphere and the asthenosphere) are still traveling at about the rate your fingernails grow. Michael Molina discusses the catalysts and consequences of continental drift.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 11, 2014 2:03 PM

Plate tectonics have alot to do with the world and how the world will evolve and in which way it will tranform in specific places. Pangaea involves not only Africa but also South America and how they broke away from the rest of the contenents about 200 million years ago. This idea involves the reality that the continents never stop shifting and the top two layer's of the Earth still grow at the rate of our finger nails grow. Divergent and Convergent boundries are apparent in the Earths ability to shift and eith come together or dive apart.

Edelin Espino's curator insight, November 26, 2014 4:55 PM

Very interesting that the earth has changed and continues to change. The continents have been separated over time and the example is there as Michael Molina explains that the continents of Africa and South America were once united as they have found remains of dinosaurs in eastern South America and West Africa.

"It can be difficult to conceive of the long process that's led the world to having its nine hottest years on record all after 2000. That's why it's nice that NASA has generated this nifty animation, which shows temperature abnormalities for every month of the past 13 decades. Watch reddish warm zones spread over the globe as time rolls past, like a virulent fever covering the body of a sick host."

In India, a School that Empowers Students and Teachers | Edutopia.org | Education First!, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Futurism | Scoop.it

I'm just wrapping up a 10-day stay in Mumbai, India, where I've been immersed in the energizing learning environment of American School of Bombay (ASB).

 

Outside the walls of this state-of-the-art, pre-K-12 international school, you find contrasts at every corner: urban slums near posh shopping malls, rickshaws sharing the roads with limousines. Step inside ASB and you notice colorful student artwork, thoughtfully designed interiors, and abundant greenery. It may feel like an urban oasis, but this is really a laboratory for innovation.

 

Long recognized as an ed-tech leader, ASB continues to push the edges. I heard about a number of ambitious initiatives at various stages of implementation, including design thinking, makerspaces, and project-based learning. Students also take on service-learning projects in the community, building empathy along with problem-solving strategies. These aren't random or disconnected programs. Together, they form an ecosystem for learning.

 

"It's all about what's best for kids," says Dr. Shabbi Luthra, a deep thinker who oversees research and development, along with technology, for ASB.

 

What happens when students and teachers are immersed in an environment that encourages innovation and risk taking? Here are just two examples.
