If you attended the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the edWebinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Coding & Robotics K-8 community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.
Many of us have taught design thinking in our classrooms. We give students design challenges where they must understand their users, iterate on their designs, and work together to publish and present projects. What if you harnessed the power of design thinking when it came to developing your own curriculum?
In this edWebinar, Charlotte Cheng, Curriculum Designer at Wonder Workshop, walks through the different stages of the design thinking process. She then shares how she used that process to develop Wonder Workshop’s K-5 Learn the Code Curriculum. Last but not least, she explores best practices to help you apply the design thinking process when developing your own curriculum.
K-8 classroom teachers, tech teachers, tech directors, curriculum directors, curriculum designers, and edtech professionals will benefit from attending this session. There will be time for questions after Charlotte’s presentation. Join us to strengthen your knowledge of design thinking and how it can be applied to creating your curriculum.
