How Might We . . . ? What If . . .?
I thrive on the promise of possibilities, on pages of brainstorms and doodles, on hallway conversations and waiting-in-line daydreams. Still, no matter the problem, challenge, or context, I put the user’s needs first.
- Who is going to use the experience, system or tool I’m developing?
- How might I learn as much as possible about the user’s point of view?
- How might I adopt the user’s point of view as I design potential solutions?
Student-centered learning, differentiated professional development, effective tech integration, all benefit from a people-centered empathy-fueled approach to authentic solution-finding. In applying Mary Cantwell and the Mount Vernon Institute for Innnovation’s DEEP DT strategy, alongside other design thinking tools and methods, I help others discover meaningful solutions to significant challenges.
