Lessons From a Pandemic: Play Creatively, Practice Passion for Learning, and Enjoy the Condition of Childhood
The ability to play and, while doing so, concentrate, observe and link myriad ideas is the essence of thinking deeply. More time to play may produce more imaginative learners and in the process more creative thinkers.
Design thinking addresses a problem by creating an object, an environment, an experience, a system, a service or a communication. It is a unique and fundamental form of human intelligence that is most often expressed in the way students formulate problems, generate solutions and utilize the design process.
The D!Lab Guide to Imagination and Design Thinking provides a research-informed roadmap for teachers, students, school leaders, policymakers and businesses that value design thinking as integral to real-world problem solving.
