Have you ever thought about what goes into a successful learning experience? How could design thinking and human-centered design create learning environments where every student’s voice is equal and the teacher alone is not the holder of knowledge? These are a couple of questions inspired by today’s conversation with Erin Bray, teacher delight specialist and lead coach for student innovation teams at Construct, a foundation “dedicated to understanding the needs of teachers and principals as they embrace the challenges of keeping pace with a rapidly changing world.” We touch on why teachers should really be called learning experience designers, how learning is a way of understanding problems, how design tools such as prototyping and post-it note clustering create a bias toward action, and how design helps learners keep up with the pace of change.
