Summary: From a partnership between IDEO and Riverdale Country School come an 89-page document that walks educators through applying Design Thinking within the school environment. A 43-page workbook with forms to guide the process is included with the free download. Uses teacher-friendly language for the five phases of Design Thinking. Infographics and specific strategies for each phase are featured throughout.
Evaluation: This resource is incredibly empowering. Case studies illustrated clearly how Design Thinking might apply in a school setting. Educators are encouraged to make the process their own. I especially appreciated the graphic that depicts how divergent and convergent thinking processes are utilized during the five phases.
