What is FUTE?
FUTE (Future Teaching) is an education method and interactive toolkit that helps teachers and students use design thinking to build engaging learning experiences based on real-life scenarios and problem-solving.
 
The FUTE materials are specifically adapted to teachers and children within secondary education in the EU with no previous experience of using design methods.
 
The FUTE materials can be explored and downloaded on this website. The collection contains:
