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.
