Design = Realizing
TUCKER VIEMEISTER, FIDSA
Design thinking is not new. Learning through doing is the essence of progressive education. All those guys: Friedrich Froebel and Caroline Pratt to John Dewey, Rowena Reed, and even in his own way, Timothy Leary were basically encouraging children to practice design, realize what’s going on, then make it better. What’s special about design is that we try to understand the situation then make real things, in short: realize.
