This hands-on and fast-paced workshop will introduce participants to the design thinking process, and will also guide participants through a series of iterative challenges that question and explore the blended boundaries of 21st century learning. Remi will begin by showcasing a design thinking toolkit developed by the Institute for Innovation in Education. This toolkit, comprised of playing cards, will help participants experience an approach to design thinking that includes discovering a blended learning challenge, framing their problem, imagining potential processes and solutions, creating through prototyping, expanding through perspective-taking, and receiving feedback from others. Participants should bring a pencil or pen, a notebook with blank paper, and a disposition toward creativity and collaboration. Digital technology is welcome but not required.
