Unlocking Creative Minds to Engage SDGs Through Design Education in Japanese High School

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This study aimed to clarify the use of a pilot design programme as a form of general education in the Japanese high school education to enhance awareness of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and develop 21st-century competencies (21CC) and social-emotional learning (SEL). The challenge for this study is to integrate design education in a high education system that has no structure for design learning. Based on a questionnaire survey, the pilot design programme allowed 17 high school participants with no design experience to solve authentic problems through design. Besides, design activities promote the development of 21CC and SEL. As a form of education for sustainable development (ESD), the current study has the potential to enhance awareness of SDGs and sustainable issues.
