The first few days of my Design Thinking class have been spent explaining the parental permission slip and student assent form and a brief overview of Design Thinking. The students have spent quality time interviewing and introducing each other after I paired them up by height. I believe the more the students know about each other, the more likely they will be successful together. Everyone seems to enjoy talking about themselves and each other. Everyone listened respectfully and were willing to be introduced to the group. It appears students are forming new bonds with each other. Students were also instructed to find someone who they were not sitting by and discover what they had in common and their differences.
