Design Thinking can help us better understand the unmet needs of the people (customers, clients, students, users etc…), reduce the risk associated with launching new ideas, products, and services. Generate solutions that are revolutionary, not just incremental.The education sector can make the best use of design thinking by taking feedback from students on their requirements, goals and challenges they are facing in the classroom. By working on their feedback, the instructors can come up with solutions to address their challenges.
