K-12 Lab’s mission to promote Design Thinking has led to an extraordinary partnership with the Riverside School in Ahmedabad, India. ”Riverside’s model of putting ‘common sense into common practice’ is now endorsed by the premier institutes in India and … the Multiple Intelligences Institute at Harvard.”
Through this partnership, the Riverside School created an initiative called Design For Change. DFC first started in India. It now reaches 300, 000 schools in 33 countries. DFC provides resources to help youth to imagine, design, and implement peer projects that will make the world a better place.
The following are video extracts from a TED presentation by Kiran Bir Sethi, founder of the Riverside School.
