Michael had the privilege of presenting “Five Rules of Design Thinking to Reach All Students” at the 2016 ISTE Conference in Denver, Colorado. This was part of “ISTE Ignite, Round 1” on Sunday, June 26, 2016. “Ignite” sessions are 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds, allowing a total of five minutes for the presentation.
What did participants say about previous “Five Rules” workshops?
Are you ready for a workshop experience like this?
Design Thinking is a process of finding creative ways to accomplish great things. You do it every day. Catching a closing door with your foot because your arms are full of groceries. Putting the bread and the peanut butter in a place near the refrigerator. The 'delay' setting on your windshield wipers. These are all samples of implementing Design Thinking to accomplish something. We all do it.
Some people have done some amazing things with it.
In this site, you will have an opportunity to explore “Five Rules” of Design Thinking. (Don't get too caught up on that word, “Rules”.) Hopefully you'll learn a few basic things, spark some new ideas, find some things you can do in your everyday practice, and have some fun helping every student achieve things they didn't think were possible.
The resources on this site are designed to accompany the face-to-face workshop “Five Rules of Design Thinking To Reach All Students”.
Before attending a “Five Rules of Design Thinking” workshop, you may want an introduction or refresher on the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). This five-minute video from CAST does an excellent job of providing that. Then, this video from designthinkingforeducators.com makes the connection to Design Thinking.
