Why is there so much interest in Design Thinking in the K-12 space? I am sure there are many valid reasons, but one surely has to be that it is a workable platform for moving children away from outdated, compartmentalized rote learning practices. Teachers want to be able to move children away from defined problem, process, and solution towards a concentration on a process involving creative thinking around problem definition, thinking critically through possible solutions, and finally evaluating courses of action leading to the most effective solution. In Design Thinking, students work through these critical questions:
Why – what is happening, and why?
What – what can be done about it?
How – how are you going to do it?
