Welcome to the Design Thinking + Education = Awesome Blog where I will share what I have learned about Design Thinking in my efforts to implement it in my classroom and school. Thank you Brian Best for the logo and banner work, and he also has a super fun satirical blog!
Just to recap, the last post discussed the idea of how students should approach creating a solution, product, or system (as Design Thinking is about teaching students how to be creators). Students should approach creation with understanding. Once they learn more about what they are trying to accomplish, their next step is to brainstorm ideas. The work done in the effort to better understand should inform their ideas as they have established empathy, needs, wants, and defined criteria for the product, system, or solution.
Brainstorming is about generating ideas. A lot of ideas. The more ideas, the better.
Brandon Bogumil is a teacher of Design Thinking, Problem-Solving, and Coding. He is also very passionate about Project Based Learning. He hopes that his experiences will help you learn about these ideas and grow into a beautiful butterfly! Thank you Brian Best for my banner and logo and for writing funny things!
