#11796 A Design Thinking Approach to Education

By the time our students enter the working world, the technology that we teach them today will more than likely be obsolete. How then, can we best prepare them for the workplace that they will encounter? The answer lies in two concepts that will never become obsolete: innovation and creativity. The Design Thinking framework gives us the ability to develop a creative problem-solving mindset when looking at situations. This framework can be brought into our classrooms to create an atmosphere that focuses on collaboration, research, and creativity. Participants in this workshop will engage in a deep dive into the Design Thinking framework while completing hands-on challenges. We will also dedicate time to discuss and work through ways it can be implemented in the classroom.
