Rock Your Paper and Scissors With Extraordinary [Design] Thinking

Session Description

Congratulations, you are HIRED! In this session, attendees will get a hands-on experience with “makers’ mindset” and designing thinking as they are tasked to research, empathize, and prototype a solution for an “eggcellent” creature. Scaffolded by John Spencer’s “Launch” framework, participants become communicative + collaborative problem solvers that demonstrate creativity, resilience, teamwork, and grit. Get inspired on how to redesign your lessons and projects for more hands-on learning while utilizing Google Tools to document the learning process. You’ll never look at ordinary paper the same way!
