Design Thinking Your Teaching Infographic
There are teaching approaches out there that tell us what to do, but it makes more sense for every teacher to teach differently every year, because we each get different students.
Think about it. We don't treat all our friends and family the same. Our interactions with them are largely based on our experience of who they are and what makes them tick. Teaching is the same way. One size fits all approaches do not work.
The challenge is that, in the grand scheme of things, we only know our students for a short time. However, personalization of education is not a fad; it's a thing. The Design Thinking Your Teaching Infographic shows how you can use the Design Thinking Cycle (Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping, Testing) to improve your teaching!
Design thinking is a prototype driven, iterative method of creative resolution of problems characterized by human-centered approach. The nature of the design thinking process is collaborative and playful.
It's important to note that when designing and implementing the new lesson etc., you can go back and forth and jump around any and all of the 5 design thinking spaces as needed. And, the product is never truly finished. It can always be improved. Kind of like teaching.
