Can we rethink Design Thinking?

Can we rethink Design Thinking? | Schools and Learning and Teaching, Oh My | Scoop.it

...in reality the best solutions are centered on understanding the issue to solve, and a lot less on the whistles and bells of how these get to be solved. Ideas only become meaningful, and potentially a signature moment, when the right problem is solved the right way. Design Thinking is used to find the right problem, as to get the problem right. Anything less is at risk to be but lipstick on pigs.

Implementing the Claim, Evidence, Reasoning Framework in the Chemistry Classroom

Implementing the Claim, Evidence, Reasoning Framework in the Chemistry Classroom | Schools and Learning and Teaching, Oh My | Scoop.it
For me, the first step toward teaching my students how to critically think about how they structured an argument or explanation was to implement the Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (CER) framework. While the premise behind CER isn’t anything new to the way science teachers already think, it provides an entirely different approach toward how students connect their experiences and previously learned content into something that is much more reflective of being scientifically literate.

Lera Boroditsky: How language shapes the way we think | TED Talk

Lera Boroditsky: How language shapes the way we think | TED Talk | Schools and Learning and Teaching, Oh My | Scoop.it
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning

Article Produced in Partnership with Cisco Education . One category of digital tools, making thinking visible, can give students a higher level of confidence to ask questions when they need help, or share their opinions and ideas with the rest of the class — leading to more thoughtful discussions. These same tools inform educators about how to plan for much more meaningful lessons. In the 1980s coming of age movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, one of the funniest scenes I remember (perhaps because I was a social studies teacher at the time) is the high school economics class with Ben [...]
