The contributions of the Design Thinking approach in Education are being increasingly recognized and are inspiring innovative pedagogical projects in schools. Divergent and convergent thinking, which are core values in this approach, seeks to multiply options for exploring educational contents and then driving toward an effective learning.
This article describes the use of focus groups in supporting divergent and convergent thinking in the learning process for basic education. Focus groups take advantage of group dynamics and allow small groups of students to be guided by a qualified moderator (teacher) in order to achieve increasing levels of understanding and deepening of fundamental learnings in the subject under study.
