Design thinking and education | Enriching education through 21st Century technology | Scoop.it
Design thinking is getting a lot of attention in lots of areas – urban planning, services, technology, risk management and many more. Thinking like a designer can help everyone and you don’t need an expensive laptop, iPad or a beard.

Annie Nguyen's curator insight, March 18, 6:12 AM

It is true that nowadays, technology and social media is a big part of our lives. However, I disagree with the author's idea. I think that class work and social media should not be connected so deeply. For example, having an online research homework once in a while is fine. However, such implements would have many disadvantges. Firstly, students would take advantage of it and go elsewhere while accessing Twitter to do their assigned work. They may log into Twitter and view other materials according to personal interest instead of completing what was assigned to them. Books and papers prevent this from happening and ensure that the students focus on doing their work. Secondly, it is too early to be using social media in schools of students from age 6-16. They are still considered as "children", and should not be using social media as yet. Young immature students may use plagirism of another student's work or someone else's online wiwthout permission. Or in another case, while the class is having a discussion, one student can just wander elsewhere, as stated in the first point. If the students take an interest in digital, they would have a chance to come in contact with that subject in university or college. At that point, they are matured and would handle social media properly. Team building games should be done physically instead of cyberly, as through the computer screen, it is difficult for students to know each other. To communicate with the students, teacher could just simply contact their parents if the student is absent from class. It is true that many youngsters nowadays are fond of social media being introduced into their education, but my personal opinion is that most of the classwork should be done on books and paper.

The beauty of unfinished work (mindsets)

The beauty of unfinished work (mindsets) | Enriching education through 21st Century technology | Scoop.it
There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do. There
is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define
a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to
it. With a shift in our mindset we might be able to celebrate this process
and encourage our students to value the learning that occurs along the way.
