Ideation in design thinking is where we have the light bulb effect. Brainstorming an idea with a team or even one other person can help us have that “a-ha” effect. This is what we all go for – the moment that syncs all the ideas together into something we can try. There is so much power and energy in the synergistic sharing of ideas that when you are a part of it you can’t stay seated and you can’t help but get excited.
At the beginning of this school year I shared with my team a hope to reframe the concept of mistakes. We shared ideas about how that would look – no mistakes, just iterations of success.
