As someone in the college applications process and an Innovation Diploma student, how the a school teaches its students is very important to me. It’s refreshing to see schools that focus on thinking out side of the box and using design thinking because most of the schools I’ve come across only care about what your SAT scores are and your grades.
Design Thinking is important, and is (or should be) the back bone of education. Without it, learning is meaningless because there is nothing to put that knowledge into. Design Thinking provides personal connection to learning and helps students take ownership of their work instead of doing it because they have to. And isn’t that what we want students to do?
