Design Thinking Tool for Test Phase – Feedback Capture Grid

Two years ago, I created a video about a project where 2nd grade students took on the role of IDEO Toy Lab inventors to design and build a toy for their kindergarten schoolmates. Our 2nd grade students used the Feedback Capture Grid during the testing phase to elicit feedback from their end users.

I would like to also give a special thanks to the following people for making this project possible: Kindergarten and 2nd grade students, Alice Ahn, Denise Brohm, Virginia Nakauchi, Gene MacLachlan, Heidi Peterson, Paul Duffy, and Jessica Jacobsen.

Parent & Child Mechanical Engineering Club

Gene MacLachlan and I created an after-school club for parents to join their children in learning how to program microcontrollers to create cool robots.
I would like to give a special thanks to the parents and students of this club, Danielle Rich for supporting us, and Gene MacLachlan for making this club a reality.

Disruptus: Practice Empathy and Ideation for Design Thinking

In this video I would like to share an awesome game called Disruptus that I learned about from my co-teacher, Heidi Peterson. It is a great game for students to practice the behaviors and thinking of the empathize and ideate phases of design thinking. The purpose of Disruptus is to have students brainstorm innovative ideas by looking at objects in different perspectives and thinking beyond the obvious. This game is a great way to help students learn and practice the following Ideate Principles: (1) one conversation at a time, (2) stay focused, (3) encourage wild ideas, (4) defer judgement, and (5) build on the ideas of others. It is also a great way for students to practice their empathy as well.

I’ve Been Writing a Book

In the beginning of the school year, Ulysses Press asked me to write a book on how to teach design thinking in education. This video is a vlog of an average weekend that I would spend writing my book. Hope you enjoy it!
