TECH: A Process A Hack and A Tool Walk Into A Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Every day we ask our students to design and create. Prototypes. Graphics. Videos. Presentations. Solutions. However, supporting those students through a creative process is often overlooked. We simply provide students with a rubric, a device, a due date and we say, “Go!” What we are left with are default fonts, pixelated images and poorly constructed models. Learn how to support student creativity by introducing them to a design process, inexpensive classroom hacks, and simple tools and materials.
