Probing Needs and Prototyping Solutions: DT4EdTech
You understand the basics of “Design Thinking,” and you’re ready to start looking at how we can better apply educational technology to streamlining processes in the classroom, helping teachers focus on the most important aspects of their jobs, and improving learning outcomes for kids! In this workshop, educators and entrepreneurs will work together to identify critical classroom needs and apply Design Thinking towards prototyping edtech solutions to fill those needs. Are you a teacher with a sticking point in your classroom? Are you an entrepreneur who wants to create a product filling a genuine need in education? Join expert teachers Stephanie Cerda (elementary, Austin), Lindsey Own (middle school, Seattle), and Adam Taylor (high school, Nashville) as they share major classroom sticking points. Jennifer Chan of Exhibit Change in Toronto will facilitate the design thinking process to deeply probe those needs, empathize with users, and ideate, prototype, and iterate solutions!
