Create Make Learn 2016

Lisa and Kevin
We are pleased to have two special guest this year who will be with us at different times during the week to help us delve deeper into the concept of design and how to integrate design thinking across all curriculum area ~
Kevin Jarrett and Lisa Yokana. Both Kevin and Lisa are known for their commitment to design thinking; both are current practitioners who implement design in their classrooms; both have transformed learning spaces using design thinking; both have shared so much with the educational community through their writings for Edutopia, through various blogs, and through social media; and both are coming to Vermont to help us transform our classrooms.

We'll start the week together with to learn more about design, designing learning spaces, design thinking, and teaching design. Then you'll pursue one of the following strands and immediately start creating and making. We'll then end the week together again to reflect, share, and plan next steps for integrating design into your curriculum area. Below are some of the hands on sessions scheduled- (topics with low interest may not be offered).

You'll start in a strand of your choice, but there will be opportunity to take workshops in other strands as the week continues. The week will model personalized learning where you will be in charge of your learning path.
