The New Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit

The New Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit | Media Info Literacy | Scoop.it

By Tim Brown

 

"A few months ago education expert Sandy Speicher was kind enough to share her thoughts with me on the question: What's different when you look at the world of education through the lens of design?

 

"Today I’m proud to share the newly relaunched Design Thinking for Educators toolkit. This toolkit supports teachers in using design thinking tools to become agents of change in their classrooms, schools, and communities by designing more effective curriculum, spaces, tools, and systems. Created in partnership with educators, the toolkit includes real-world classroom experiences and an accompanying workbook to help teachers determine which challenges to address.

"Please share this free toolkit with educators in your network, and tell us: What’s your favorite tool in the new Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit?"

Am wondering if this is equally useful for University level - can't see why not so far?

Take advanage of the online couRse!

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 13, 2012 1:24 PM

UNESCO has been working with ISTE and some of the top US tech companies to improve world wide education.  Going into online teaching is a logical way to meet the growing needs of all nations.
