Goldman, Kuo, Pozos, Mesinas and Lange will present a paper titled Empowering Teachers through Design Thinking: Developing Learning Prototypes for Multilingual Students outlines a methodology to facilitate intervention through Design Thinking in the practice of primary school teachers.
Rodrigo Vargas Callegari explored the need for Design to be effectively projected as the career of the future – being capable of impelling social and technological innovations on a human scale – it would be necessary to overcome the acquisition of basic technical skills and move towards greater citizen participation, markedly critical, and with democratic and political values. The authors proposed that to facilitate this move, there is a need to rethink professional training and the role of Design in society. NOTE: this event was in Spanish // Este evento será en español
Eva Lutnæs discussed her journal paper in which she presented an interesting national curricular response that created an opportunity for Design literacy to be incorporated within the K-12 general education system. Although this idea was promoted two decades ago, Eva Lutnæs provides an account of how it can be operationalized. Thus, the critical aspect of Lutnæs' contribution was that the outlined national educational initiative can serve as a model for other groups looking at Design as a possible educational framework.
