Making and Design Thinking

11 Jul

My streams have been abuzz with “making” and “design thinking.” Last Wednesday was a great first Design Thinking in K-12 Twitter chat (#dtk12chat). I’m starting to get my head around the concept after the chat and attending the Innovative Leadership seminar from the Santa Fe Leadership Center.

Our school is in the middle of a huge project in which we are expanding our Innovation Center to include the computer lab. The new space will be part film studio, part maker space. It’s been an awesome experience helping design the space. I look forward to our school having a beautiful space to create and play.

We’ve started looking at how to make the space maker friendly and I’m looking at Make Space: How to Set the Stage for Creative Collaboration. It’s a fantastic mix of projects, theory, and case studies to help guide the creation and use of maker spaces. I highly recommend it. It’s one of those book you’ll return to over and over. I can tell already.
