Expert support for design thinking:
“To scaffold the design-thinking process, the Tools at Schools team has students produce three boards en route to their proposed solution. Here’s how Aruh describes these deliverables:
Board One: What inspires you? You might pull pictures from magazines, use color swatches, or words — whatever gets you excited about the topic. It’s the beginning of a synthesized visualization of the subject matter.
Board Two: What are the problems and solutions? What are the common issues users face? This likely requires research (and problems typically outnumber solutions). What are your top three? This board helps you determine, “What are you really trying to solve for?”
Board Three: What’s your pitch for a potential solution? Why is it worth considering? How well can you articulate that? Your pitch goes on the “big idea” board.
