This one really appeals to me! No surprise... How might we take the experience of classroom redesign and make it authentic? So that it's more than a presentation to admin? Let's take this further!

I love the idea of making something authentic.  School doesn't always have to be hypothetical- students can make real changes to their world now. Can we get students involved in designing learning spaces and then build those spaces? Can we create partnerships with organizations...like Steelcase and other design thinking firms to work with students to design and then actually create. OH how about partnering with local government organizations too!

Let's do it. I was thinking about doing something like this with my architecture class this semester... Field trip to Steelcase? Want to bring City kids?
