We’ll dive into Design Thinking as we also explore how to solve problems of practice in our educational programs and also begin to think about how to design small scale pop-ups, pilots, and prototypes that help us to practice empathy-based inquiry, a bias towards action, prototyping, and fail (as well as succeed) forward.
Come learn about Design Thinking as we "Hack the Hallways" of Roosevelt Middle School. Together, we'll use this incredible process to work with student designers from RMS to solve a problem that exists in almost all schools across the US -- how to transform the hallways to reflect the mission, vision, culture, and education model that we aspire to be.
Through this design experience you will:
- Learn how to use design thinking to solve real-world problems in education
- Get to interact with real kids and do real work that benefits a real school
- Have the opportunity to think about the important intersection of values, space, ritual, behavior, and more
This workout is open to all sdl fellows, their teams, and other hella awesome Oakland educators who want to learn more about the power of design thinking.
