Design thinking is a problem solving process. You may be familiar with it as a process that companies and individuals use to solve problems and create new products. You may have even learned about it at a workshop or conference session. But how does one actually use design thinking in education? Design thinking is an important, future-ready skill for our students. It teaches them to collaborate empathically and design imaginative solutions to problems. It helps our teachers and students work together to make relevant learning experiences. To that end, we strive to implement design thinking throughout our entire K-12 school, from student projects, to teacher professional development, to administrative decisions. Come hear about our approach and how our students are benefitting from it (and yes, foil and popsicle sticks are sometimes still involved!). Find resources from the session at bit.ly/DTATLIS.
