Event description
Remove traditional constraints and create authentic learning experiences that challenge misconceptions of what students can and cannot do.

About this Event

In our increasingly connected and rapidly changing world, design is the reminder that our products and experiences should be purposeful and human-centered.

– David Slayden

Education is in constant flux driven by the rapidly changing world around us. Educators are being asked to challenge students with new types of learning experiences focused around creativity, collaboration and solving authentic problems. We often consider the challenges teachers face, but may not recognize that students are being asked to approach learning in drastically new ways. However, when we engage our youngest learners in these types of learning experiences, their ability to thrive in new situations will astound us. These opportunities pave the way towards fostering adaptability in learners that is so imperative in later years.

In this two day workshop, participants will become learning designers and begin to remove the traditional constraints that obstruct authentic action in the Early Years. We'll look at breaking down misconceptions of what the students can and cannot do when we put the tools and toys in their hands, redesign the schedule and get out of their way. This tactile and tactical approach of balancing the digital with the analog will not only help promote big ideas, creativity and innovation, but it will also help reshape the perspective of both parents and students when it comes to Edu-Tech in the Early Years, Maker Ed and Design Thinking.
