Design Thinking is a mindset. Design Thinking is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education.

How Design Thinking will fix Design Thinking | DESIGN THINKING | methods & tools | Scoop.it
Design Thinking continues to be a hot topic (this article is one of many talking about it). Design Thinking has been hyped and even fetishized but there are also voices questioning its value, impact, and relevance. Design Thinking faces criticism for its lacking integration with business and compatibility with market reality. There are organizations that …

[PDF] Thinking & acting like a designer: How design thinking supports innovation in K-12 education 

[PDF] Thinking & acting like a designer: How design thinking supports innovation in K-12 education  | DESIGN THINKING | methods & tools | Scoop.it
The needs of the twenty-first century demand new approaches to learning. Today, student success requires skills for collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving, and these skills are increasingly becoming a focus in both K-12 and higher education settings. But twenty-first century learning needs to be much more if we are to expect young people to both navigate an unknown and complex future and meet the challenges that accompany it.
 
We need change-makers, people who will redefine problems, inspire new ideas, take informed risks, and never stop learning. Change-makers implement and evolve solutions that aim to better the individual and the whole, be it a classroom, a school, a community, or a society. This is the approach of a designer and the focus of this publication.
 
Design touches all aspects of our world. As this publication shows, designers work to impact the human experience, and they generally do this with particular mindsets that encourage looking at challenges as opportunities for design. Four mindsets typically guide the behavior of a designer: human-centered, collaborative, optimistic, and experimental. Designers also often act in a particular way, following a process that helps them generate and evolve ideas, beginning with problem-defining and empathy, using synthesis and prototyping to develop strategic ideas, and ending with implementation.
 
Taken together, how designers think and act make for design thinking, a human-centered approach to creative thinking and problem solving. Thinking and acting as a designer and, in turn, employing design thinking are powerful ways to encourage people to become change-makers in education.

12 Types of Prototypes to Test Your Idea – Steve Glaveski – Medium

12 Types of Prototypes to Test Your Idea – Steve Glaveski – Medium | DESIGN THINKING | methods & tools | Scoop.it

Fail fast and often is a rhetoric we are no doubt used to hearing, and perhaps have come slightly sick of — like anything that is repeated too often. And perhaps that has to do with the fact that such narrative isn’t actionable.

In my conversations with many corporate executives looking to drive innovation, it becomes clear that their idea of fail fast or of a prototype is a proof of concept that usually takes several months to develop, costs tens of thousands of dollars — if not more — can often be a fully functional product, and still doesn’t really serve the purpose of an early stage prototype — to validate problem, solution and proposed business model.

Jaws often drop when I introduce them to the concept of prototypes that you can oftentimes build in under an hour and for little to no cost.

Below you’ll find a number of different prototypes you can leverage, in addition to supporting development tools, to perform early stage customer testing from day one, not day 90.

The downside of being happy

The downside of being happy | DESIGN THINKING | methods & tools | Scoop.it

Nobody likes to be sad, but it can have a powerful and positive effect.


The idea that sadness somehow kindles creativity is a popular and long-lasting one. Its roots go back to antiquity; even Aristotle noted that those who excelled in the arts, politics and philosophy had a tendency toward “melancholia.” The artistic canon appears to be full of people whose dark mental states kindled their brilliance but also brought their lives to an early end — such as Vincent van Gogh, Anne Sexton, Mark Rothko, Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf.
