In addition, Design Thinking; the cognitive, strategic and practical processes by which design concepts are developed are merged with the critical praxis to create an approach
that encourage the 21st Century Skills – the 4Cs, communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity.
In addition to core modules CoDesRes also produced a series of micro-modules and lesson plans; Young Entrepreneur, Leadership, Recycling and Waste and Media Communication (including introduction to audio and video production, graphic communication and presentation) as well as learning activities for primary and pre-primary age groups; StoryBank, Pollinators and Adaptations and Community groups; Rapid Engineering for Communities, Rapid Media for Communities and Rapid Governance for Communities
