I Leave You With This...

How do you teach students to become problem designers?

“After 40 years of technology, we are still spoon-feeding students problems to solve,” Alan November said. He finds this ridiculous in an era when hiring managers and business leaders routinely say they are looking for employees who can define the problems the company faces and set about attacking them. But students don’t often get to practice defining the problems they will solve. And without exposure to this type of thinking they become dependent, knowing the teacher will do the hard work of devising problems for them.


It's time to prepare students for the future by allowing them to design, collaborate, and give back.
