Design Thinking: Teaching Methodologies

5 Digital Thinking procedures

What exactly is Design Thinking? Design Thinking is a practical and creative problem-solving school of thought that takes a solution-based approach. Moreover, it is an iterative process that does not have to take place sequentially, i.e., it is non-linear. This teaching methodology prepares students for the world outside of classes and school. Thus, they solve […]

A Glimpse into the World of Online Tutoring
