How We Teach Children Stanford Design Thinking

Understanding is the first step of the design thinking process. Children immerse themselves in understanding a problem and setting a goal.

Once they set their goal, children brainstorm solutions. They learn to suspend judgment at this stage — no idea is too far-fetched and absolutely no ideas are rejected. They get silly, take risks, and think big in order to dream both the impossible and the possible.

Children create rough prototypes — sketches, models, and cardboard creations — to convey their ideas quickly.

Testing generates feedback — what works and what doesn’t — in order to make changes. They learn that failure leads to success.
