Hi there. I'm a former New York City public elementary school teacher wrapping up a master's degree in educational media design. I also work as a researcher at a nonprofit dedicated to the study and development of educational technology for children.
Looks like I missed the build phase. Sorry guys. I've actually been doing quite a bit of work on this project--just haven't had a chance to check-in here. Here's the website where I've begun to compile info about my design process, but it's nowhere near done. I'm working on building a design thinking curriculum focused on empathy & civic engagement that aligns with units and essential questions in the NYC K-5 Social Studies Scope & Sequence. Stay tuned and feel free to use any of the curricular materials once they're posted! https://ebb344.wixsite.com/dt4all/
Here are links to the lesson and student packet I created for my first design-thinking lesson with kids. There's also a skeleton for the remaining four lessons I intend to teach in the deck, but I haven't managed to finish them yet. I taught Lesson 1 this past Monday, but don't have time to post all my observations and insights right now unfortunately!
