Report Summary

Maker Education

Now that you HAVE a makerspace, what are you going to DO with it?

Making as a discipline offers schools a unique opportunity to put students in charge of their own learning. Design thinking provides a framework for “purposeful making” – making that matters – because it inspires students to generate solutions to real-world problems. Linking design & making in this way empowers learners to create their own knowledge and establishes a relevance that, individually, each area of study otherwise lacks.

Design Thinking

(a.k.a. Human-Centered Design or HCD)

Design Thinking / HCD is a methodology being used by businesses, organizations (including leading brands such as IBM, Target, SAP, Proctor and Gamble and Intuit) as well as collaborative teams all over the world. It is being taught at leading universities including Stanford and Harvard. Why all the hype? Design Thinking is a way to rapidly develop innovative solutions to problems grounded in the deep understanding of an end user’s needs. Bringing design thinking into an organization will ignite transformation, engagement, and impactful change moving forward.
