Are You Indispensable - A Design Thinking Approach to Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In an era where machines are replacing more and more people, linchpins are individuals who are unique, who do emotional work, and who are passionate about what they do - ultimately serving as the creative problem solvers in their communities and organizations. We are often told that education must nurture these skills within our youth, yet as educators, we face the challenge of how to enhance and develop these skills. Together, we will explore how you can overcome the traditional structures in your classroom and create a culture of innovation where your students can think, play, dream and design. From 1st grade to higher education, be inspired by how students are creating real solutions to real problems. In this interactive session, participants will have the opportunity to discuss ideas for how they can begin implementing a design thinking approach in their classrooms as you help create the future problem solvers of tomorrow.
