How can we make schools more relevant, engaging, and capable of supporting the development of skills and dispositions that will help students themselves design a life worth living? Drawing from his ample experience in the classroom, as a school administrator, and as a designer, the author makes the case that design thinking offers an approach to education that is responsive, collaborative, and well-suited to the opportunities of the twenty-first century. Full of exercises and suggestions for how design thinking can change educators' approach to classroom layout, virtual learning, assessment, and more, this book shows how we can make today's classrooms better places to teach and learn. The book helps create the conditions for K-12 teachers and school leaders to innovate and improve a new kind of educational experience. It's a book for readers who are invested in rising to the challenges faced by modern institutions and a powerful argument for the ways design thinking can transform education.
