Design Thinking is a human-centered creative strategy that can be used to resolve issues and is widely used in business management. However, design thinking in education has been gaining popularity in recent times. Design thinking can be a transformative experience and has the potential to make the classroom, a space for possibilities.

Design thinking empowers students to realize that they can create their own futures by borrowing frameworks from other areas, which allows them to design their own participation and experiences. It offers a way to reshape the curriculum around experiences that engage students, and to transform classroom experience based on feedback from students. In essence, design thinking prescribes a collaborative, solution-oriented approach rather than an individualistic, problem-oriented approach.
