What is Design Thinking and Why Is It So Popular?

Design Thinking is not an exclusive property of designers—all great innovators in literature, art, music, science, engineering, and business have practiced it. So, why call it Design Thinking? What’s special about Design Thinking is that designers’ work processes can help us systematically extract, teach, learn and apply these human-centred techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative way — in our designs, in our businesses, in our countries, in our lives.

Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung, and GE, have rapidly adopted the Design Thinking approach and Design Thinking is being taught at leading universities around the world, including d.school, Stanford, Harvard and MIT. But do you know what Design Thinking is? And why it’s so popular? Here we’ll cut to the chase and tell you what it is and why it’s so popular.

6 Steps to Media Creation in the Classroom - Daily Genius

6 Steps to Media Creation in the Classroom - Daily Genius | iPads & Historical Thinking | Scoop.it
As we prepare students for the unknown work environment of the future, it is important that we, as teachers, work with them to develop a foundation of skills that will help them become successful in avenues beyond our school’s walls. While we may not know exactly what the future skills in the workplace may be, we can foster this particular skill set in our current classrooms. According to a report by The Economist Intelligence Unit, employers desire workers with an increasingly demanding skill set including: problem-solving, digital literacy, leadership and creativity. To that end, creating media content in our classrooms can foster all of these skills. By having our students create content using voice, images, video, or any combination of the three, we are allowing them the opportunity to express themselves in ways that may not be possible in a written assignment, while developing the skills necessary for the future.

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies | #Research

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies | #Research | iPads & Historical Thinking | Scoop.it

— Breaking up and spacing out study time over days or weeks can substantially boost how much of the material students retain, and for longer, compared to lumping everything into a single, nose-to-the-grindstone session.


— Varying the studying environment — by hitting the books in, say, a cafe or garden rather than only hunkering down in the library, or even by listening to different background music — can help reinforce and sharpen the memory of what you learn.

— A 15-minute break to go for a walk or trawl on social media isn’t necessarily wasteful procrastination. Distractions and interruptions can allow for mental “incubation” and flashes of insight — but only if you’ve been working at a problem for a while and get stuck, according to a 2009 research meta-analysis.

— Quizzing oneself on new material, such as by reciting it aloud from memory or trying to tell a friend about it, is a far more powerful way to master information than just re-reading it, according to work by researchers including Henry Roediger III and Jeffrey Karpicke. (Roediger has co-authored his own book, “Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning.”)

When you hear the word “create” or “make,” you might be tempted to think of a tangible, physical product. However, in design thinking, students might design other types of products. So here are some of the types of things students might create.

8 Tech Tips for Differentiating in an Inclusion Classroom

8 Tech Tips for Differentiating in an Inclusion Classroom | iPads & Historical Thinking | Scoop.it
I have had the opportunity to work with students with disabilities in an inclusion classroom for about ten years, and for nearly all of those years I have been in a school where every student has a laptop.

With technology at their fingertips, a priority for me became trying to find ways to use that technology to reach my students with disabilities. I have learned a lot over the years thanks to some amazing students and co-teachers. Here are eight of my favorite tech tips for differentiating in an inclusion classroom.
