Looking to add design thinking to your curriculum but not sure where to start? At Design39Campus in San Diego we use the Design Thinking Process to make content relevant to students and to connect them to the past, present and future world around them. This session will introduce you to the many tools and protocols we use to spark projects, conduct empathy field work, and help children practice the prototype-test-revise cycle we know leads to a growth mindset. Join us for a hands-on session with tons of take-aways.
