• DESIGN for CHANGE 

    A PROJECT IN DESIGN THINKING


    "Design creates culture, 

    Culture shapes values.

    Values determine the future."

                                           -Robert L. Peters

        

     

    Rationale:  The top 10 in demand jobs in 2018, did not EXIST in 2012.  Technical information DOUBLES every 2 years.  We are currently education students for jobs that don't exist, with technology that has not been invented.  In order to solve problems that we don't even know are problems yet.  

    That means for a student starting a 4 year degree, half of what they learn in the first year will be OUTDATED by the third year of study!


    The Design Thinking Framework 


    Feel: Transforms helplessness into empowerment.  Develops EMPATHY.

    Do:  What it takes to bring about change with courage and determination.  Develops EXCELLENCE.

    Share:  Insipiring others to become inspired.  Develops ELEVATION.
