Check out this Google Slides interactive notebook that students can use to document their learning when going through the design thinking process!
Many projects require students to design and create a solution to a real-world problem. This solution can be a tangible product, a service, or an action plan with detailed information of how to solve the problem. Students use the design thinking process to develop these solutions. Design thinking is an iterative method used to solve complex problems with a focus on human-centered design. This solution-thinking method is ideal for project-based learning and integrated units because it requires radical collaboration between different subject areas, and generates creative and innovative ideas for complex problems. The process involves five stages: Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test. Students use the Design Thinking Digital Interactive Notebook to document their progress in developing their solution.
