Design Thinking in school - from passive to active learning

Invite your students to experience the design thinking process and offer them the opportunity to create something with their own hands. The workshop ‘Design Thinking in school’ is a window into a world full of creativity, play and activity-based learning, where the students are offered the chance to experience first hand getting an idea and then also realizing it. 

Learning with the mind and the body – The creative design process is about more than changing the physical surroundings – it’s about learning in a new way. The workshop moves the learning situation from passive to active learning, by activating the mind and the body. Students learn new notions with the brain and at the same time experience what it means to create something with their own body. They become familiar with the feeling of having created something, based on a new learning experience that activates them and teaches them something new that is rooted in something real and concrete, as opposed to the more passive learning experience, where they are passive recipients of new knowledge. Read about how the students at Kildegårdsskolen built their own Crealab in the basement at Herlev Library.
