From Puttering to Prototype in Makerspaces: Using Design Thinking with Elementary and Middle-School Students

Date and time: Tuesday, October 3, 2017 2:00 pm 
Duration: 1 hour
Description:
Join Booklist for this free, one-hour webinar that will explore new ideas for addressing common problems in makerspace. If you're growing restless with kids who putter but don't seem to finish, or if you're looking to make stronger curriculum connections in your makerspace, consider layering the design thinking process to your program. First designed for use in advertising and product design, design thinking is a problem-solving process that prioritizes empathy, research, testing, and iterating. It keeps the student work open-ended, which is critical to maker mindset, while providing a thinking framework that can have powerful impact on how students interact with their world. Design thinking can be used with a wide variety of tools and media, including sewing, cardboard construction, coding, video game design, engineering, and more. In this webinar, we'll examine the design-thinking process and share some strategies, supports, and starter ideas to get you going. Led by Kristin Fontichiaro, Clinical Associate Professor, University of Michigan School of Information and Series Editor, Cherry Lake Publishing. Moderated by Booklist Books for Youth senior editor, Sarah Hunter.
