Design thinking is a creative approach to problem-solving. Through collaboration and iterative thinking around the design, participants develop ways of thinking through and creating solutions to their identified problems. It involves integrating the user’s context, affordances of technology, and taking into consideration systemic constraints into the design thinking process to create meaningful, implementable and contextual solutions. Participants of our first workshop have tried developing digital games/resources for different teaching-learning challenges. This year’s workshop will focus on digital pedagogies for schools in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This workshop spread over five weeks aims to equip and train participants in the creative process of designing technology-based solutions for a pertinent educational problem. Participants will be encouraged to identify and work with a teaching-learning issue emerging from their context. The main objectives are:
Teachers will experience and understand the steps of Design Thinking in the process of designing and implementing digital resources/lesson plans for students Teachers will discover new ways of exploring, creating and curating digital tools and resources for teaching. There will be a focus on analysing their own teaching-learning context and identifying affordances and limitations of digital learning therein. Teachers will engage in constructing and repurposing lesson plans that can be implemented/taught online using constructivist pedagogies and pedagogy content knowledge (PCK)
