"Some of the best use I’ve seen of apps on the iPad is where teachers have engaged students using apps in conjunction with others. Filming activities, recording audio, adding the media to Keynote and annotating, demonstrating learning – that said, there are some great subject specific apps out there and in this post I’ll cover some of the apps available for the Humanities subject Geography."

Innovations in Education - Teacher Creativity Leads to Student Creativity

One way to design a transfer task is to imagine what someone in “the real world” might do with that knowledge and skill – what kind of work would they be doing? 

 

Then, build a plausible scenario where students can be in those roles, and/or make it real by having their final product, thinking, and ideas shared with an authentic audience.

I have the honor to work with a wonderful colleague and team that focuses on the  Montessori way of teaching. So my question, how different is design thinking from Montessori? Thoughts?

What is "Design-Thinking?"

What is "Design-Thinking?" | Social Studies Education | Scoop.it
In many ways, this Fellow-year has been a treasure hunt. The guiding question has been "Where are the richest opportunities for authentic, engaged, student-centered learning?"  By extension, which ...

 

Interestingly, one of the most exciting approaches I’ve come across has a humble origin: the process associated with design. “Design Thinking” is a process, a framework, a series of steps that designers go through in order to solve problems, to improve existing ideas, or to realize previously unseen potential.

Qu'est-ce que "Design-Thinking?"

À bien des égards, cette co-année a été une chasse au trésor.La question directrice a été «Où sont les riches possibilités d'authentique, engagé, l'apprentissage centré sur?" Par extension, ce qui ...

 

Fait intéressant, l'une des approches les plus excitantes que j'ai rencontré a une origine modeste: le processus associé à la conception. "Design Thinking» est un processus, un cadre, une série de mesures que les concepteurs vont à travers afin de résoudre des problèmes, à améliorer les idées existantes ou à réaliser le potentiel inédit.

 

===> En bref, il s'agit d'un processus délibéré qui peut être utilisé pour augmenter la curiosité, la créativité et la pensée critique. <===

Notice the similarities of "design thinking", instructional design, engineering design and game design. All are examples of simple good design.
