Teaching Design Thinking is one of the most exciting trends I’m seeing in K-12 schools. Not only is it a great way to engage students in solving real-world problems, but it also develops their problem solving skills, their creative confidence, collaboration abilities and the list goes on. I’m currently developing a Design Thinking curriculum for a great organization, and I developed this visual to represent the different layers that a class on Design Thinking addresses. The main thing to note is that the class should not ultimately be only about Process Execution or even Process Skills, because the real power of Design Thinking is in the Process Attitudes.
