Category Archives: Reflections and Refining

We need to reflect on: The activity of each session, the way we are learning while designing our Blog and the way our Blog -the means to learn- is supporting our learning

Instead of offering an instructional sequence that “works,” the objective of design research is to offer teachers an empirically grounded theory on how a certain set of instructional activities can work. (Gravemeijer, K)

is about using the designer’s approach to solving problems and developing new design. A ‘Great Design’ is characterized by a deep understanding of the user, creative resolution of tensions, collaborative prototyping, and continuous modification and enhancement of ideas and solutions.

Experienced pattern recognition:
Creating ideas is one thing, choosing the best one for the situation at hand, is where the real brilliance or experience comes in.
