The truth is we all have the ability to innovate, we just have to exercise that ability. The ability to innovate can be done through several techniques where students “define the problem themselves through research and direct observation”. What I personally love learning about this concept is that students are given room to fail. In a traditional school setting, students are not looked at in a well manner if they fail. In this case, failing and taking risks are promoted to entice students to administer “design thinking” as David Kelly would say.
To add to this article, this school can even reach out to other people who have great ideas but don’t necessarily know how to expand on those ideas. Once the class expands their idea, it can be made into a company that can potentially give back to the school to help more people.
