Check out this article from the SEGD [Society of Environmental Graphic Designers] on the award winning design of this amazing school-a brainchild of SD City College Professors MaeLin and Amy Levine at Visual Asylum. 

Project-based learning looks a lot like Design Thinking

“The Urban Discovery Academy’s driving mission is a project-based learning approach, meaning students learn experientially, by tackling a topic or project and diving into it. They generally work in groups on activities designed to answer a question or solve a problem. If this sounds a lot like Design Thinking, that’s no coincidence. Project-based learning shares many of the attributes of Design Thinking, and Design Thinking, says Levine, appears to be the “next big thing” in education”.
