Design Thinking: Creating Problem Seekers Not Just Problem Solvers

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

Current educational practices often produce students who are simply Problem Solvers, instead of Problem Seekers. Sound technology integration in the classroom provides opportunities for students to hone skills in Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, Choice, and Curiosity. This workshop will immerse educators into Design Thinking activities to use with students. I will also share the infusion of design thinking with my own students to implement Genius Hour.
