ABOUT

#dtk12chat is a community of educators+designers with a wide range and depth of design thinking experience - from novice to expert. Please join us at the Twitter hashtag #dtk12chat for a 24/7 conversation about design thinking in K12 education (and beyond) and a one-hour live chat on Wednesdays at 9PM eastern. We will connect the dots from educational pedagogy and curriculum to the design thinking methodology.

 

How might we enable educators around the world to leverage the design thinking mindset in order to unlock creativity and innovation in our students and ourselves?
