Design Thinking Toolkit, Part 1

Writing about web page

I had translated the toolkit labeled ‘Design Thinking for Educators’ to Farsi and had already sent the translation to IDEO so they can put it online to be used by more people. Until then, I will post the translation here on a weekly basis. If you want to try this method, you are more than welcome to use it but if you decided to share the document with others, please mention my name.
Hope it will be useful for you.
Here you can find the first part of the translation:


Design Thinking for Educators

Writing about web page

Design Thinking

« Design Thinking for Educators » is a toolkit provided by IDEO. It is a problem solving tool by means of which you can overcome almost any challenge. It focuses specifically on challenges faced in educational settings such as classrooms, schools and universities.
Last semester I decided to work on this toolkit so I started translating it to Farsi. It was a tough job but the results cherished me. My students worked in groups of 3 to 5, focusing on two main challenges:
1. How might we provide a leisure space within the university?
2. How might we redesign the registration process at the university?
But we had a bigger challenge at the beginning; How might we adapt this toolkit to our culture? In other words, how might we localize the process provided by the toolkit?
I tried my best to be faithful to the process but due to some cultural differences, I decided to make some small changes. The « Exercise Book » seemed boring for the students as it had a lot of repetitive parts, so we decided to skip those sections. In general, the toolkit was really helpful in coming up with some solutions. You can find the prototypes here:

P.s: The good news is that the translation is being edited by IDEO and soon it will be available for anyone interested.
