    Design thinking

    Kia ora tatou,

    Technology is a process-driven curricula, so Kiatakatū ā-Matihiko has produced an iterative model (right) that reflects the design thinking phases (EMPATHISE > DEFINE > IDEATE > PROTOTYPE > FEEDBACK) that fits well with the new Digital Technology areas of the Technology curriculum. For more on the connections with designing thinking and Digital Technologies see, Design Thinking in the curriculum.

    It's not surprising that schools/kura are redesigning their inquiry-based (or project-based) learning models with a design thinking process in mind. One school is revisiting their model and seeing how this better reflects the students and the community they live in. 

    Inquiry models  

    They've been cutting up their existing student inquiry model, overlaying ideas from other inquiry models (as well as their own scientific framework) and creating a mash-up with the design thinking phases in mind. They're also mindful that their model has a student voice and reflects the community and partnerships with local Māori.

    Is your school happy with your current model/s for learning? How does the design thinking process fit with these? Time for a revisit/redesign perhaps? We'd love to hear more...
