What’s the Diff?
Jess and I have been talking about design thinking a lot lately. In fact, we had an epic video-making session this morning where we answered some specific questions on why it’s critical to use design thinking in education and how it benefits students. We are crafting an online course called JumpStart: DT Primer to give you some tools that you’ll be able to use immediately. Should be ready in about a month. Stay tuned.
One question comes up over and over that I want to address here and now:
What is the difference between using design thinking to teach content and teaching students how to design think? Isn’t that the same thing?
Well, the quick answer is No. Those are not the same.
One is a delivery system and the other is a learning process.
