Abstract

The NETS for students published by ISTE in 2011 name creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration, research and information fluency, and critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making at the top of the skills list. To design is to rehearse each of these skills. Design is a skill that is relevant to students in all disciplines. Designers identify problems in their immediate worlds and devise meaningful, practical solutions to those problems. During this roundtable, participants will explore the components of critical and creative thinking and the phases of design. They will examine how designers use critical and creative thinking in each phase of the process and then participate in a mini design challenge to experience the same. Finally, participants will brainstorm ways to implement design-based learning in their own classroom.
