Familiarise your class with the Design Thinking Process this term with our online workshop that aims to support and enhance your teaching programme. This online session is delivered by Zoom, bringing the MOTAT Education experience to you from anywhere in the country.
Using real-world case studies of Kiwi innovators, students will learn about the design thinking process and how it can be applied to problem solving.
After the workshop, teachers are given access to further resources so they can facilitate students using the design thinking process to identify and solve a problem in their community
At the completion of the course digital assets will be supplied to the teacher as a resource for continued learning in the classroom.
By taking part in this workshop and the challenge afterwards, your students will be able to:
• discuss amazing Kiwi innovators and their innovations
