Events Designed by Gilkey
Friday, January 23, 2015
The Middle Years Program of the International Baccalaureate encourages students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It provides students opportunities to develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need in order to manage complexity and take responsible action. In particular, the MYP Design classes that Gilkey students take in 6th, 7th and 8th grade allow them to pursue a link between innovation and creativity while solving a design problem. Inquiry and problem-solving are at the heart of MYP design. To create a practical solution requires the use of the design cycle as a tool, which provides the methodology used to structure the inquiry and analysis of problems, the development of feasible solutions, the creation of solutions, and the testing and evaluation of the solution. In MYP design, a solution can be defined as a model, prototype, product, or system that students have developed and created independently.
