We have Summit Hill Elementary, Trinity School, Drew Charter School, Woodward Academy, Cliftondale Elementary, and Atlanta International School working together to go deeper into their understanding design thinking.
At AK12DC we are learning how to use design thinking to address important school issues. Each of the six schools at the Track 1 November Summit held at Atlanta International School has come with a design challenge they are working on. The design teams have gained empathy with their user. At the summit, they will look carefully at their empathy data and design point-of-view statements to guide the development of a prototype for their challenge.
Kevin Lewis, a First Data colleague, takes the group through the design thinking wheel so they have a shared understanding of what the terms mean.
