NCompass Live: Pretty Sweet Tech - Design Thinking: How Technology is Made - Recorded Online Session 


New special monthly episodes of NCompass Live! Join the NLCís Technology Innovation Librarian, Amanda Sweet, as she guides us through the world of library-related Pretty Sweet Tech.

In recent years weíve all been hearing more about "design thinking". Fun fact! Itís not a new process. Itís just problem solving. You probably already use it, but may know it under a different term. The difference is that design thinking puts the user first. Thatís right, humans matter in technology design. Itís a novel idea.

This weekís Pretty Sweet Tech aims to de-mystify design thinking and how technology is designed, prototyped and tested. When we know how technology is made, we all have a better chance to choose and use technology more effectively. Hereís a rundown of what this session will cover:

  • What is Design Thinking?
  • Example as it applies to technology design
  • Using Design Thinking to Choose Technology Tools
  • Using Design Thinking to Teach Technology Literacy
Letís get together and build people-first technology. Make technology mean something.
