Why is Design thinking more influential than programming skills?
Coding is also indispensable in various STEM courses. Many parents and teachers believe that programming is an essential language ability in the future. However, the breakthrough in problem solving ability and thinking is the key to greatly increasing value. For example, if a team of top-level engineers with programming skills don't know how to observe the details and find good inspiration in life, they can only stay in front of the computer and write valuable programs.
The success or failure of a product begins with conceptual design. Therefore, the designer plays this important role, observing the problems and needs from the perspective of the target user, and conceiving a lot of wild design concepts, and then making prototypes for testing and discussing with the engineering staff.
Problem solving and design skills are an innate gift for everyone. Therefore, our team believes that in order to comprehensively improve the creativity and competitiveness of students, whether students are interested in programming or not, they can also experience how to independently design some novel objects or mobile phone applications, using the most suitable tools and technologies, simply and directly Demonstrate concepts to target users, gain insight into the details of life, and make use of your own universe.
