Ewan, thanks for addressing the difference between these frameworks. I often find that we(teachers)try to force new modes of thought into existing ones. The result always seems to be that the original idea becomes overly generalized. The most significant distinction between PBL and UBD versus Design Thinking is how significantly they value the learning process. Being trained in both UBD and PBL led me to become hyper-focused on a predetermined product. We offered students many choices, but they all had to meet up in the end. The power of Design Thinking and Inquiry Circles http://www.heinemann.com/products/E01230.aspx is that they respect, value, and teach process. Both students and teachers feel free to slow down, gather feedback, and evolve. I like to think that PBL and UBD are great stepping-stones to true authentic learning.
