Designing Our Way to a Better World

Thomas Fisher

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter addresses the near absence of design education in K-12 schools and how it often reflects the myth of the creative genius in modern society. The chapter explores work by several creative people and how they cultivated that creativity and the courage to deploy it. It offers a vision of a redesigned K-12 education that teaches students diverse intelligences and offers a more creative approach to the STEM fields.

Keywords:   design education, K12, creative genius, diverse intelligences, STEM
