Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Bias toward action (PROTOTYPE) - Section 6: #Thisisourrapidprototype


On a final note, this is the second time I have had students created hashtag summaries for their ideas and they seem to LOVE doing this.  I have no idea why students respond so well to a fake Twitter feed on a class whiteboard, but work completion, depth of thought, and enthusiasm were all very high.  I am planning to give students a short answer survey about all the key activities in this unit, so hopefully I will have a better understanding in the future.

  Why do all students like expressing what they have learned through hashtags?

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?
