Design Thinking

‘Design Thinking is a methodology used by designers to solve complex problems, and find desirable solutions for clients’ (Naiman, 2017).

In class, we were asked to consider why does Design Thinking make sense in education?, and why is it important to consider Design Thinking as a scaffold for learning in 2017?

I think that Design Thinking makes sense in education as it is about finding the best possible option for something to achieve, and in education, that something is the students. It is our job as teachers to ensure all students have the best education and all have a fair go of being successful and achieving anything, and with design thinking used in education, it helps teachers give these opportunities to their students.

I think it is also very important to consider using Design Thinking as a scaffold for learning in 2017, as technology is becoming a huge part in today’s education. Technology is helping and improving students education and learning abilities so implementing the Design Thinking process into your classroom is very important.
