Title of Session: Educational Innovation through Design Thinking & Data Analytics
Analytics in combination with design thinking can be revolutionary by virtue of the value it creates for education institutions. Design thinking puts users and their needs at the center of applications and at the starting point for developing any new programme or solution. By embedding analytics into design thinking, education institutions can unlock new opportunities, build empathy for stakeholders and pave the way to exceptional experiences. In this session, learn how modern data intelligence can help provide a more personal and human design experience. Samuel will show how to use data in creative problem-solving: to generate ideas, create better designs, and connect with users in meaningful ways. He tackles data generated by computers as well as that gathered through interviews and other means. He shows how to collect, analyse, and visualise the information to help solve your challenges, leveraging intelligent tools and agile processes such as rapid prototyping.
