What happens when students embrace design thinking?

What happens when students embrace design thinking? | Australian curriculum | Scoop.it
The Global Day of Design just wrapped up on May 2nd. If you want to see what happens when 80,000+ students embrace design thinking, check out the Twitter stream and #GDD17 hashtag!

Students from six different continents (over 20 countries) participated and rocked this event in the second year in existence. Teachers and entire schools carved time out for students to not only beginning with empathy, not only brainstorm and navigate ideas, but to make, create, build, and design while in school.

This was only one day, and although the event was a success for our students, the real question is: What happens when students embrace design thinking beyond one day?

Nando Castellanos's curator insight, May 15, 2017 1:55 PM
This article contains one of the most determining topics in education. Promoting desing thinking or critical thinking in students is one of the most challenging and significant aspects to do for teachers. Therefore, this article provides an example about how can we make that students come up with ideas which become trascendental in their likes and in their learning processes. Exposing students to such activities will make that our labor be more meaningful. Therefore, our task is to reflect how can we promote this kind of ideas in our classrooms.

Lessons Learned as a Maker Educator – Medium

Lessons Learned as a Maker Educator – Medium | Australian curriculum | Scoop.it

It’s tough to be amazed when everyone in the class is churning out the same project. Conversely, I’ve found it impossible to not be constantly amazed by the work students do when given choice and the opportunity to create something new! One of the most rewarding experiences for me is to see the moment when the synapses fire and a student suddenly sees something that hadn’t been there before.
