Words like innovation, disruption, or hacking are commonly heard in progressive education circles, but the reality of our own contexts often leaves us perplexed when faced with the task of bringing them to life. Where do we start when we have limited control? Where do we start when we have total control? We need a guide to help us navigate toward our goals. This engaging and interactive workshop is an exercise in self-reflection. Participants will use multiple strategies drawn from Design Thinking, like developing empathy and ideating, to build a prototype for problem reframing within their schools. By taking some time to examine what is working and what needs to be left behind, you will leave with an accessible intervention strategy to help you move toward ambitious, positive outcomes in your daily work.
