Teach Your Students to Fail Better with Design Thinking
Long, Christian
Learning & Leading with Technology, v39 n5 p16-20 Feb 2012
Design thinking is about using design to improve the human experience. It combines collaboration, systems thinking, and a balance of creative and analytical habits. It also fuels what the students want for themselves: making an impact on the real world in real time and having adults take their passions seriously. The process essentially comes down to a continuously evolving feedback loop with four elements: empathy, ideation, prototyping, and testing. In this article, the author discusses the concept of design thinking and how it can be used to teach students to fail better.
