Students in MYP Design at CDNIS develop technology skills that are relevant, timely, and purposeful. We know that contextual learning is one of the most powerful ways for learners to acquire and retain knowledge. As such, courses centre around making products that have purpose and personal engagement. Design principles across publishing, programming/app development, and product design are covered. This further supports one of the core characteristics of the MYP Design model − that technology projects address “real world problems”. Student iFolios, digital citizenship, and productivity tools/skills are folded into the courses throughout.
Additionally, this skill set of design thinking and application will serve students well as innovative thinkers and creators across all of the MYP academic areas, in the DP programme, at university, and later in the workplace.
