IS Luxembourg Design Thinking Conversation

What a great time it was to visit the Digital Learning Loft. During this hour, we learned about design terms and concepts and discussed how we might be able to use design language to further our goals in education.

Teachers, leaders, aids, involved parents are all designers. We are designers of student spaces, of their learning program, we design how we provide formal and informal feedback and we design how we interact with one another.

Together, we discussed Design Thinking terms

  • Curb Cuts
  • Universal Design
  • Hostile Design
  • Placebo Buttons
  • Affordances and Signifiers
  • Privacy in User Experience
  • Front End vs. Back End Design
  • Be Consistent
  • Users vs Designers
  • Clear Labels
