to teach Design Thinking
In this case study educator Gabriela Novotny explains how she increased student engagement and made connections between the past and present with Certified Schools.
Students learned that everything around them was at conceptualized by someone at some point from the chairs they sit on; to the utensils they use; to the cars their ride in. Design is all around us and these students loved learning about design.
“I was so excited to discover lessons that really worked for me and my students. The design challenge course led many of my students to find inspiration in design thinking and I look forward to using more Certified Schools courses.”
