Innovative Designer – ISTE Student Standards
What is innovative design?
“The world no longer cares how much you know; the world cares about what you can do with what you know.” – Tony Wagner, Innovation Education Fellow, Harvard, 2012
INNOVATIVE DESIGNER STANDARDS
- Students know and use a deliberate design process for generating ideas, testing theories, creating innovative artifacts or solving authentic problems.
- Students select and use digital tools to plan and manage a design process that considers design constraints and calculated risks.
- Students develop, test and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical design process.
- Students exhibit a tolerance for ambiguity, perseverance and the capacity to work with open-ended problems.
Teachers who build up innovative designers in their classrooms help students to:
- “learn about design processes and how to apply them.”
- “apply design practices to come up with new projects or products.”
- “develop and test their own products or solutions.”
