    Creative Critical Thinking: Bringing Design Thinking Into the Classroom

    Monday, February 27, 2017 | 7-8 pm ET
    FREE for NAEA Members; $49 for non-members

    Today’s art teachers are preparing students for the 2025 workforce in which prototyping will be a form of senior leadership. To meet this challenge many teachers are adopting Design Thinking as a best practice for developing their student’s blended creative and critical skills. Design Thinking is a widely respected approach for framing and solving problems in commercial and civic economies. In education Design Thinking can help every student, regardless of their differentiation, to discover their potential to be resourceful and ingenious.

    This webinar begins with a brief theoretical and historical overview of Design Thinking, and then reviews ideas for how Design Thinking can become part of the professional development of teachers. We’ll discuss not only art and design curriculum, but also broader lesson planning, child development, parent interaction, and collaboration with colleagues. While discussing some successes, this webinar concludes with an honest look at the challenges facing teachers interested in incorporating Design Thinking in their profession.
