Design Thinking Prof. Dev. Workshop

In early August I started what I hope to be the first of many Design Thinking workshops for educators in my district.  Twenty curious teachers worked through IDEO’s “Wallet” exercise and came away, in three hours (note to self…WAY TOO SHORT!!!)  with one primary understanding:  Building Empathy for the user is crucial to this process.

If that’s what they can get in three hours, besides the exhilaration and “flow state” that hands on, time constrained, learning can create, then I’m happy.  I’m planning more workshops to shift culture in my district and engage students in Design Thinking at all levels and for all learners (that includes teachers, administrators).

If we’re not changing the world, we’re not educators…we’re not human beings.
