Ten Things That Happen When Kids Engage in Design Thinking – John Spencer

Ten Things That Happen When Kids Engage in Design Thinking – John Spencer | MLSHS eLearning | Scoop.it
Creativity and innovation have become buzzwords in education (though not as quite as trendy as hipster beards or skinny jeans). It’s easy to look at the maker movement and write it off as yet another trend in education. But what if it’s not just a trend? What if it’s an idea whose time has come? For years, schools have been stuck in a one-size-fits-all factory model, where students passively consume content. But here’s the thing: kids aren’t widgets. While one-size-fits-all works great for socks, it’s not ideal for minds. Kids need to dream and wonder and imagine. They need to design and build and tinker.

 "I Like That. . ." 
Require feedback that includes answers to all of these statements: I like that. . . I wonder if. . . Best next steps might be. . . 
Rose/Thorn/Bud 
This critique also addresses the good (rose) and the bad (thorn), but also the potential (bud) for what may be a good idea but needs work.
