Design Thinking in Action


The Design Thinking Process was introduced and used by the teachers of CBC Monkstown in a CPD day organised by The Learning Revolution.

The Design Thinking Process is a methodology created by David Kelley (IDEO) in Stanford University and is used by Industry to foster creativity and innovation .

The purpose of the day was to use the Design Process to look at ways in which we could apply this process into the Education system. The core purpose of this was to look at ways to enhance our own learning environment and spaces.

This was an alternative method of brainstorming ideas. It focused on small groups collaborating to come up with solutions to specific areas that were agreed by the teachers.

These are a selection of images from our fab CPD on Design thinking held recently and facilitated by esteemed facilitators Professor Suzi Jarvis and Dr. Colman Farrell from the Innovation Academy in U.C.D.



 
 
The day was a great success and the staff have subsequently been implementing the changes discussed into the school.
