DesigningEducation.org is the result of several factors that significantly impacted my thinking about education - specifically, how it happens at every stage of the process. Over the past few years, I have been introduced to some ideas that settled deep in my brain to influence how I was constructing professional development experiences and lesson materials for students and teachers alike.
I took those influences and used them to create a one-day workshop for teachers. This isn't a sit-and-get training that you could get just by reading some documents or watching some videos on your screen. This is a collaborative, constructivist event. You will be asked to discover, explore, research, and build. There will be things to hear, see, touch, smell, and taste. You will leave with five rules of design thinking that you can use to impact the way you teach, so that you can more effectively reach all students.
