Welcome to Week 2 which focuses on Introducing Design Thinking

Within this section we focus on Introducing Design Thinking and the sub topic of What if we moved to space?

The structure for this section

There are five parts to this section. In the first three parts, A: See and Think – Units 1 to 3, we share our work with you across the theme of  Introducing Design Thinking and the sub topic of What if we moved to space? In the next two parts we ask you to reflect and plan to develop a lesson idea, and then to share your thoughts on our online community.

Here is a bit more detail:

  • The first part A: See and Think contains three units – Seeing STEAM, Experiencing STEAM and Hearing STEAM, all related to the question What if we moved to space?
    • You will spend time reviewing each of the three units; each containing a case study, some examples from practice and a lesson plan which could be a starting point for the theme. This part will take you approximately 1 hour in total. You will then choose one unit idea to take forward to part B: Reflect.
  • For part B: Reflect you can choose between two 30-minute tasks:
    • (more general) – reflect on how the ideas from this section relate to your previous teaching experiences and how they might impact on your future teaching.
    • (more specific) – develop a lesson idea based on one of the units and reflect on how you will put it into practice. 
  • For part C: Share you will spend 15 minutes:
    • sharing your work by posting in the Online Community adding an image or link to illustrate your ideas if you can.
    • commenting on at least two of the other participants’ posts.

We are excited to hear your thoughts on the themes and hope that you will find it really useful to exchange ideas with everyone in the community.
