 Message: We are currently working on updating our technology curriculum to match the new student standards. Our teachers are having trouble wrapping their head around standard 4 Innovative Designer - Students use a variety of technologies within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions.

Students know and use a deliberate design process for generating ideas, testing theories, creating innovative artifacts or solving authentic problems.


Students select and use digital tools to plan and manage a design process that considers design constraints and calculated risks.


Students develop, test and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical design process.


Students exhibit a tolerance for ambiguity, perseverance and the capacity to work with open-ended problems.

If you have any suggestion, ideas, examples, or clarity on exactly what this standard is seeking (especially 4d) on how to meet this standard my teachers would greatly appreciate.

Thank you for your help,
