With creativity and innovation becoming an integral part of education, we here at Acorn have included Design Thinking as one of our key modules. Essential not only for student leaders, but entire cohorts as well. Through this module, we hope to create other good habits in students such as effective questioning as well as innovative problem.
Design Thinking not only encourages creativity, it also provides a support framework to guide participants to be practical and realistic at the same time. Most importantly, it aligns itself with our delivery methods as it is activity-centric. Promoting independent learning through the hands-on focus of conducting ground research as well as making prototypes. A holistic problem solving tool that not only encourages but also empowers students to take their ideas off the paper into the real world.
