The Innovative Designer

What is an Innovative Designer?

Students use a variety of technologies within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions.

Students know and use a deliberate design process for generating ideas, testing theories, creating innovative artifacts or solving authentic problems.

Students select and use digital tools to plan and manage a design process that considers design constraints and calculated risks.

Students develop, test and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical design process.

Students exhibit a tolerance for ambiguity, perseverance and the capacity to work with open-ended problems.

How will you fulfill the Innovative Designer Standard?

Among other things you will use,, and TinkerCAD to develop, test, and refine prototypes of programs, games, animations, and digital objects (with the chance of 3D printing them, pending on the 3D printer status and time).
