Innovation, Design, and Education

After months of research and planning that began with a simple idea of teaching others about designing information, we are launching our first post as the American Society for Innovation Design in Education (ASIDE). Our mission is simple. The underpinning of good design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners that crosses over all aspects of education. This is especially true with regard to information today.

We also realized that finding the available resources to support our goal of providing a place for teachers and students to obtain what they needed was not in any one particular place, but scattered throughout the web and not easy come by when searching. Many of the scholarly articles we uncovered regarding education were also dated and provided scant follow through with current curriculum design. In addition, many of the websites were geared to the professional graphic designer or the high school student entering a career in the same profession.

Our decision to start ASIDE is to bring together as much information, resources and supportive scholarship in one place for teaching and learning. Design is not just an aesthetic, but instead is a process of taking a concept from its formative state to its final outcome. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. Our hope is that ASIDE becomes a forum for sharing ideas and best practices with others.
