Dear Colleagues, Here is a link to a spectacular "Little Mermaid" 5D Design instructional video from Disney California Adventure, posted at Professor Martin Rayala's wonderful blog "andDesign" (K-12 Design Education)... http://anddesignmagazine.blogspot.com/2011/01/little-mermaid-at-disney-i... Professor Rayala's blog is awesome for PBL... He has a very succinct writing style: always including a brief list of PBL process points. This example of 5D Design is: 1. Ideation 2. Visualization (Disney staffers call it "Blue Skying" :-) 3. Prototyping = scale model building 4. Implementation One final note about the brief Disney Video (of course it is spectacular :-) ...Listen very carefully to the Project Director, so you catch her use of the word "Imagineering"... Us 'old-timers' have been beating this drum in schools for 40+ years enjoy the "California Adventure"... Allen Berg
