Design Thinking with Kids (Re-Play! OOSH)
Wed. 26 October 2016, 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm AEDT
Want to spend a couple of hours having fun and learning how to teach kids 'design thinking' skills? Brett from Schoolhouse will share the design thinking methodology, and explore how to share it with others.
Design thinking is a great way to work with kids because it develops a range of important skills. It encourages creative thinking in a wide range of domains. It also encourages critical thinking and shows how critical and creative thinking can work together to generate great ideas.
The approach is also very hands-on. It has a focus on exploring a problem through doing - from asking people to experiencing things for yourself. It also focuses on doing as part of developing solutions - creating prototypes to test ideas, getting people to use initial prototypes, and learning through trial and error.
NB this workshop will run about for approx 2 hours.
