Design thinking can be a powerful mindset for problem solving in any discipline. To put it simply, design thinking is a structured approach to generating and developing ideas. It is human-centered, collaborative, optimistic, and experimental. Teachers and students can use Adobe tools – like Adobe XD – to apply a design thinking approach to creating mobile apps and web sites. Students will benefit from following an intentional process to solve difficult challenges to create a positive impact.
