We created a drone that delivers learning materials to students in rural areas so they can explore open-ended problems

how  

In supporting students prototype the next, make it clear they understand it is not about a journey from "here" to "there" (present to future) but  the recognition of a new point of reference for thinking - from which everything else emanates 1. consolidating insights collected from going to the edges of the system or from future/past speculations - insights help students establish a relationship of cause and effect 2. developing intentions mean translating the insights (learnings) into actionable ideas 3. building prototypes includes tinkering through features and clustering them to create more robust concepts as well as rounds of iterations in which students take their concepts to be tested in the real world 

 
 
 

outcomes

  • SOCIAL AGENCY: by creating prototypes and implementing ideas students understand the obstacles and benefits of taking relevant action in the world

  • CRITICAL THINKING: when implementation happens students can see and think upon the impact of their action and hence develop critical thinking

  • REAL WORLD LEARNING: students get the opportunity to think through problems and issues in multi disciplinary ways and understand through experience its direct impact in the real world
