I have re-entered the classroom as a part-time Physics teacher after 8 years working as a mix of: an eduction consultant, a leadership coach and facilitator (pedramparasmand.com) and Director of an Innovations Consultancy, The Skills Lab (theskillslab.com). I have an interest in Design Thinking methods and processes I am keen to bring this way of working into my classroom and school as a whole. Ada College (adacollege.org.uk) - a start up school which opened it's doors this year - is committed to rethinking how to educate our future digital pioneers.
This is a great activity which I've used. Helps highlight that we are more similar than we are different. I've been thinking about this activity in the context of celebrating diversity... probably more appropriate to be celebrating similarities.
