Are you looking for a way to blend the Common Core standards with the Deeper Learning Skills you know kids need today? The Design Thinking Process allows students to learn content while growing their collaboration, critical thinking, communication and creativity skills. Join us to experience the Design Thinking Process for yourself through an integrated humanities and STEM challenge. Tools and scaffolds will be provided along the way that you can take directly back to the classroom. The session will end with plenty of classroom project examples and time and support to create your own design challenge.

Objectives – Participants will…

  • define the deeper learning competencies as defined by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, http://www.hewlett.org/programs/education/deeper-learning/what-deeper-learning (Mastery of Core Academic Content, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Collaboration, Effective Communication, Self-directed Learning, an “Academic Mindset”)
  • participate in a Design Thinking challenge
  • experience and reflect on the Deeper Learning competencies through the Design Thinking Process
  • plan a design challenge that can be used in their own classrooms
