Design Thinking for Educators

In December, I was inspired by the video "How Design Thinking Can Empower Young People" created by People Serving People and discussed on Edutopia.

Today, I discovered another online resource that covers Design Thinking for Educators that includes a toolkit and interesting examples in application and practice.  It reminds us that design in this way is used for problem-solving approaches that centre on cognitive or "thinking" processes related to design. (As an aside, I wish there was a better wikipedia definition of design thinking available! Maybe that's our next collective task...).
