Design Thinking in Education

What do you think: Does Design Thinking have a place in education today? 

Watch my vlog below to learn more about Design Thinking in education, and my personal opinion on it’s part in education today.

I say YES. Design Thinking allows me to picture learners working together to solve meaningful problems that are relevant. Design Thinking is comparable to an Inquiry-Based type approach, where learners are focusing on meaningful and authentic topics and in this case problems. They are working through the problem-solving process, which may be messy, but is an invaluable learning experience for everyone involved.
