The Marriage of Past and Present
The scope of my design practice is inclusivity for learners. It includes learners in every capacity imaginable; from artists whose language is colour, visually impaired students, intellectual geniuses who cannot sequence order of events, adults coming back to literacy, learners with cognitive impairments, individuals whose cultural lens has not been seen in education, youth who live with trauma as a barrier to education, the list is diverse, and it is never complete.
The following principles have come organically from many years of practicing design thinking without guiding principles. I have taken what I have learned in LRNT 524 – Innovation, Design and Learning Environments and applied that to the last twelve years in the analog world of curriculum design and imagined how I might use those practices in a digital context. These six principles are what culminated.
