Sarah Whiting, a CORE Facilitator, discusses design thinking and how it is being implemented in education settings. Sarah talks about the way the CORE facilitators use the principles of design thinking as a tool to help people to unpack problems or issues they may be experiencing in a variety of situations. Whether its visioning, strategic planning or engagement of learners design thinking can be used as a way of reviewing the current situation and then working collaboratively to look for new and or different possibilities for the future. Sarah says design thinking works as a framework for schools to engage with the process and impact of change particularly as they can see that there’s an endpoint. Sarah likens the design thinking models to teaching as inquiry which can involve many cycles of learning.
