DESIGN THINKING 101
Design Minds Website - developed by The State Library of Queensland
Design Minds is a must visit website with loads of resources and toolkits - aligned with the Australian Curriculum. The blurb:
"New perspectives create new opportunities, new solutions and gradually a better world.
Design Minds utilises design thinking to develop the capabilities of successful and creative 21st century citizens within existing education and learning benchmarks.
Design Minds achieves this by explaining design, inspiring through resources and empowering through design thinking toolkits. Design is presented as a process in its simplest form: inquire, ideate, implement and at each stage evaluate.
Design Minds is not about getting rid of what you’re already doing as a teacher, but is rather a way to augment and enhance what already happens in the classroom by accessing and sharing resources and partnering with real world designers, businesses and the broader community."
