Edward De Bono once said that “creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.” In this workshop, young learners will learn the process of thinking and solving problems creatively while staying relevant to the world around them. They will learn the principles of design thinking from case studies done by Stanford University which will develop a thinking framework that will eventually make them a more empathic and creative thinker.
- Empathize– How to ask questions and conduct small/personal researches with people who are receiving what our young learners are creating for them
- Define– How to start solving problems by first identifying what the problem is
- Prototype– creating a small samples
- Test and pitching– testing each idea to see how it relate to the real world
Key Learning Points
- How to turn ideas into something tangible even little by little
- Process of thinking and solving problem creatively while staying relevant to the real world.
Originated from Stanford University, ‘Design Thinking’ is a popular process that educators use to teach students/young learners to help solve problems in the real-world. Design thinking is a methodology for creative problem solving. Hence, SEAC, YourNextU Young’s owning company, has partnered with Stanford University to let young learners adopt the process of ‘Design Thinking’ and apply it to eradicate the current disruptive world.
