You have completed a Future Design School introduction to design thinking workshop, and you're ready to start implementing innovation tools in your classroom. But, you have questions about how to align your lessons to curriculum.
In this three-week online course, you will learn how design thinking not only fits into the Ontario curriculum, but also brings to life key skills and understandings for students that teachers can foster when creating innovative lessons.
This workshop will include:
Instructional strategies for integrating design thinking with curriculum expectations
Backwards planning for design thinking
How to design an innovation project for students within any subject at any grade level
Developing “How Might We” questions that are fuelled by student curiosity and interest, but guided by curriculum expectations
Teachers will walk away with:
A tool to create design projects connected to curriculum, employing design thinking, that they can try out in their classroom.
We will meet online via video-conference on Tuesday, November 29th, Tuesday, December 6th and Tuesday, December 13th from 8pm-9pm EST. In between sessions, you will work on designing a project for your students and collaborate with other participants.
