Five Rules of Design Thinking to Reach All Students | Michael Roush | TEDxWorthingtonED

Reaching a widely diverse group of students requires flexible means and methods.

Design Thinking with Elementary Students (1st Grade)

In this unit, students learned about the external parts of different animals that help them meet their needs and survive in their specific environment. These parts help animals see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, and move from place to place. Their parts also help them seek, find, and take in food, water and air.

All about Learning. Design Thinking.

Design Thinking is a cyclical process that allows you to solve complex problems in a creative way. It is cyclical: you will build prototypes of your solution and will work on them, asking for the feedback of your stakeholders until you will design the final solution.
