Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Bias toward action (PROTOTYPE) - Section 3: What is a prototype?

 

Students were also very excited about the news that we will be spending a lot of time this year prototyping our ideas.  The Walmart truck example was popular for most students--and this was expected, as it was an actual suggestion from a couple of students in previous lessons--but it is perhaps not the best example to use for this series of lessons.  The problem the Walmart truck example poses is the problem I have encountered throughout this unit.  How can I better help students develop prototype solutions to problems of classroom culture by providing prototype examples that more closely mirror their learning tasks?

Bias toward action (PROTOTYPE)

Unit 1: "Unit 0": Engineering design thinking
Lesson 5 of 12

Objective: Student will be able to: 1) conduct a pre-mortem analysis of a solution idea; 2) extract information and synthesize ideas from an engineering design text; 3) articulate the purpose of a "bias towards action" mindset in engineering design thinking; and 4) develop a rapid prototype of a solution idea.

Big Idea: Convergent thinking produces shared ideas that will become prototype solutions to problems. How might we help students assess and develop their ideas as rapid prototypes?
