ACHIEVE. BELIEVE. LEARN. EMPOWER.
ABLE clubs are patterned from Design Thinking pioneered at d.School, Stanford University. Design thinking is a creative approach to problem-solving.
Creativity is harnessed through continued practice and providing opportunities to apply it. We believe that by providing Design Thinking at the school, we harness our students’ creativity and provide the capability to go beyond adapting to normal routines and ordinary thinking practices.
Design thinking starts with people. It’s about putting human needs at the centre of what we do. It’s about simple mindset shifts and new ways of looking at problems through Empathy and Collaboration. For an idea to be both meaningful and successful, our students would be exploring things around them with Empathy, Ideation, Prototyping and Application with feasibility, desirability and viability.
Making their way through this path, children can naturally design processes that will make lives better for the whole human race.
The Design Thinking practice at the school is embedded in the Co-Curricular activities and in timetabled classes. Students with their interest groups explore the various phases of design thinking and come up with creative solutions to problems that they are passionate about.
The skills of design thinking will help students take the biggest of their challenges and build their creative competence with the support of caring and creative mentors.
Below are the various interest groups called ABLE Clubs.
- Media & Technology
- Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
- Young Artists (Dance, Drama, Visual Arts and Music)
- Public Speaking
This enhancement in the learning process should only provide better opportunities for our 21st Century learners to succeed in a fast-paced world. We are excited, more than ever, as we journey through these enhancements at Lancers International School.
