Here are resources that will support you in creating design thinking experiences for the people around you – your students, your colleagues, and yourself. Go forth with confidence – you know this stuff!
Methods and How-Tos
- Powerpoint decks are on the K-12 Lab Wiki.
- The curriculum examples from the stations are also on the K-12 Lab Wiki.
- The Day 3 handouts and worksheets are also on the K-12 Lab Wiki.
- The K-12 Lab Wiki is a treasure trove of curricular ideas and resources, geared especially towards k-12 educators.
- MIndfulness Cards illustrating how we think about the topics of Space, Momentum, and Safety.
- The Bootcamp Bootleg (.pdf) is our largest collection of methods available online.
- The Gift-Giving Project is a 60-90 minute design challenge that introduces people to design thinking. We’ve iterated on this challenge for several years at the d.school, and we use it to start off many of our classes and workshops.
- The Virtual Crash Course is similar to the Gift-Giving Project, but all you have to do is print out the worksheets, gather prototyping materials, and push play. Perry Klebahn and Jeremy Utley lead participants through the entire process.
- The d.school Mixtapes are a follow-up activity for right after the crash course. Choose one of 3 different goals, and follow the prompts and methods inside.
- The d.school Mixtapes: same website title, but this time they’re real mixtapes. These playlists were created by d.school staff to provide backing music for your design thinking activities.
- StoryViz is a compilation of resources from the d.school class Storytelling and Visual Communication.
