Hi Nancie. I think the application of design thinking requires cultural and economic nuance. Your post highlights the use of apps to coordinate schedules, when analog participation can be as simple as being around when breakfast is being served in a cafeteria. Parents can send notes to teachers asking if they can read to an elementary class, make copies for a middle or high school class, or bring snacks to a community wide event. Perhaps some parents think they’re not participating, when they actually are, because their input is offline and free/less-expensive than what we often now deem as participation.
