The Study of teaching equipment needs for design thinking activities
This study aims to discuss the equipment demand of design thinking teaching activities, and then sort out the design thinking teaching activities as the basis of the interviews. Taking the equipment for discussion space of a National University of Technology as the case, 8 interviewees involved in the activities are surveyed and the study explores the equipment demand of teaching activities through understanding the demands of interviewees by in-depth interviews.
The study results show that the dimensions of equipment demand of teaching activities can be constructed by assist ideate, physical sensations and function operation. (1)The dimension construction of assist ideate demand includes visualization assist and technology assist, and the visualization assist has the prime importance. (2) The dimension construction of physical sensations demand involves the security and comfort, and the comfort is the most obvious. (3)The dimension construction of function operation demand contains mobility, convenience and flexibility, and the flexibility is considered the most important. From the comprehensive comparison, we can find that, the function operation is the most important and the flexibility demand of the equipment is most concerned about. The students can conduct the design thinking teaching activities more efficiently if they can master the above factors.
