Ideas for giving students purposeful design problems and examples of student work that results.
Creative use of digital tools can engage students and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.
Asking students to invent something to solve a problem is a great way to teach the design process and engage students in powerful work in your maker space or time.
Ask students to design something that helps others benefit from this expertise.
Students apply what they have learned about animal characteristics and adaptation to create a new creature and introduce it to the scientific community.
Teaching others is the best way to learn content and designing tutorials provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge while helping their peers.
Put students in charge of informing others about important issues such as safety and digital citizenship.
Combine narrative, informational, and argument writing to get others to take action or change their behavior.

We used digital resources to research an animal. Then used Wixie to design an informative display about how the animal survives in its natural world. #ShakeUpLearning @VillaCrestaElem pic.twitter.com/rBLfhByCZZ— Jennifer Gitelson (@Mrs_Gitelson) November 28, 2018
