From Pages to Prototypes: Frankenstein and Design Thinking

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From Pages to Prototypes: Frankenstein and Design Thinking will be a presentation on how to use design thinking in an English classroom. During the presentation, we will explain how to use the design thinking process to encourage my students to think deeply about characters and themes in Frankenstein. The first half of the presentation will involve the audience. We will take them through the first few steps of the design thinking process. During the second half of the presentation, we will share ways that we reinforced essential skills throughout the process to move from surface learning to deeper learning. At the end of the presentation, attendees will have time to ask questions and view some of the prototypes my students created. One other component we will share with attendees is the importance of having students reflect on their engagement, their own thinking as well as the entire design thinking process throughout the project.
