Prototyping and iterating in school

I don’t recall being taught about prototyping or iterating while I was at school. Shouldn’t these two fundamental aspects of designing/developing anything get taught in school? (maybe they do now – it is 17 years since I left secondary education!).

So many facets of our lives would benefit from a change of focus from the ‘first past the post’ approach to finding a solution.

Iteration teaches us that it is okay to fail, that everything you do doesn’t have to be successful providing you learn lessons from the experience. The playful, fail-free, creative core of prototyping and iterating surely should be taught to all.
