I was looking at some of the winning entries from the RSA's Student Design Awards, in particular, 'Donate at the Gate' and was blown away by the creative solutions to complex problems. You can see what I'm talking about here: http://sda.thersa.org/en/
That got me thinking: how do you encourage creativity and design thinking amongst your students? What opportunities are there for young people in schools to grapple with complex problems? Should there be such opportunities? I imagine there are links here with PBL, but I was curious to hear from other educators out there.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas.
