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.

Graphical vs Text-Based Coding for Kids - TechAgeKids

Graphical vs Text-Based Coding for Kids - TechAgeKids | Sam's Ed Assortment | Scoop.it

"It's often assumed that children need to progress from graphical programming languages such as Scratch to text-based programming languages such as Python or JavaScript. I find this ironic as I spent much of my career working on developing graphical languages to make software development more accessible to adults with subject knowledge rather than coding expertise. I also spent a lot of time developing software using graphical languages (often with some text mixed in.)

This article is going to get into some detail. For parents wondering whether their child needs to move on to a text-based language, the summary is: 


     * Graphical vs textual isn't really that important an issue.  


     * It's whether a particular language allows your child to do what they want to do in a way that's efficient and enjoyable for them. 

 
     * Start with what they want to make and find a good language for that which is suited to their expertise level and the way they think.  


     * It's a myth that adults don't use graphical languages. They do. "

Last year, Dr. Karlsson Wirebring and fellow researchers published a study that supports what many educators and parents have already suspected: students learn better when they figure things out on their own, as compared to being told what to do.
