The Crossroads of Design Thinking & 3D Printing 

Why Design Thinking? How Might We Create meaningful learning environments for students?  This is a huge question to tackle and one with countless reasonable answers.  Whether classrooms embrace Project Based Learning, Inquiry Based Instruction, Personalized Learning, or another other framework for a classroom experience, the intention tends to be universal.  Educators want to create the most meaningful environment that allows for students to explore new ideas, learn essential skills and content, and demonstrate their understanding. Add into that equation student collaboration, creativity, and connections to real world problems, and we have a steep mountain to climb.  Design Thinking has emerged…

Finally, completed design books can be published in a number of ways, allowing students to showcase not only their…

An “Extraordinary” Approach to Bringing Design Thinking into Any Classroom – from Beth 

This post first appeared on EdTech Researcher at Education Week. In his 2009 book, Catching Up or Leading the Way, author Yong Zhao argues that students need to engage in creative problem solving across the curriculum to develop the skills required for success in a global economy. However, most curriculum primarily focuses on student acquisition of content knowledge and then assesses them based on their ability to reproduce a single response — a practice which does little to encourage creativity and problem solving. Johns Hopkins University researchers, Gregory, Hardiman, Yarmolinskaya, and Limb (2013) insist that creativity needs to be explicitly…
