Design Education: Creating Thinkers to Improve the World (No. 338)
BY ROBIN VANDE ZANDE
Students need lifelong skills to build their problem-solving capabilities for better understanding of the world and themselves. Working through design lessons allows them to directly apply thinking strategies and learning about facts, figures, and concepts while they are crafting meaningful ideas about the influence and social implications of everyday items.

 

Design Education: Creating Thinkers to Improve the World will engage teachers and students from all disciplines, while educating them about the role that the four categories of design (product, communication, environment, and interactive) have in improving life through social responsibility, and enhancing life and the creative economy. Co-published with Rowman & Littlefield.

 

“This book opens up a discussion of design education for children and youth. It illustrates socially significant ways to build design education in schools and strengthen the connections between art and design education. Attending to the interdependence of the two fields will aid student learning about the vast production and influence of visual and material culture in their lives.”
—Kerry Freedman, Professor and Division Head of Art + Design Education, Northern Illinois University

 

“Children are growing up to live and work in a rapidly changing and increasingly technological world. Design thinking, creativity, and problem solving are ever more essential tools for young people to develop and therefore good design teaching is ever more important. This book is indispensable contribution to this important area of education and should be a constant companion to all those teaching it.”
—Richard Green, Chief Executive, Design and Technology Association of England
