A few weeks ago, I wrote about the importance of Design in the International Baccalaureate curriculum as students enter the Middle Years Program (MYP). Now, in a four-part series, we'll dive a little deeper and see actual design students putting the four stages of the cycle into action while completing a unit known as the Landmark Marble Roll. This week we take a look at Creating the Solution.
MYP Design Cycle in Action: Creating the Solution
In my previous two posts, Design students showcased how they tackled the Landmark Marble Roll project through the Inquiring and Analyzing and Developing Ideas stages of the MYP Design Cycle. This week's video details the next stage: Creating the Solution. In this phase, students Constructed a Logical Plan, Demonstrate Technical Skills, Make the Plan and Justify Changes.
