Ideo Books Design Thinking For Educators

The Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit gives teachers the tools and methods they need to apply design thinking—discovery, interpretation, ideation, experimentation and evolution—in real-world scenarios.

IDEO designers have been using similar processes, methods, and tools for years in tackling some dauntingly complex challenges. More often than not, we’ve experienced how design thinking helps to get to the next step.

Why design thinking? Hear firsthand stories about how design thinking can apply to education.

Included in the toolkit are the Designer’s Workbook, workshops and an ongoing free five-week virtual class to help hone skills and empower teachers to create desirable solutions.

The effort is helping teachers become agents of change within their schools, driving new small- and large-scale innovations. Visit the Design Thinking Toolkit for Educators site for stories, case studies, process outlines, engagement opportunities, and more.

Teachers and students collaborating

Educators across the nation have been using design thinking to solve challenges in their work. Projects range in scope and scale, with design solutions for curriculum, space, processes, and systems.
