  • Design education is about becoming familiar with design and its different forms. It helps us see the broad scope of design and understand our opportunities for influence in shaping the environment and creating a better everyday life. The accumulated knowledge and skills are important in any field and in changing situations.

    MUTKU Design Education for Elementary School is an inspiring teaching module for elementary school grades 3–6. In my thesis I studied design education, its role in Finland and its place in Finnish elementary school studies. I also present the MUTKU teaching module. As a productive component of the thesis I constructed the curriculum for the MUTKU Design Education for the Elementary School teaching module.
