LAUNCH: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student.
A message from AJ himself!
Global Day of Design is coming soon.
Here's a free, design thinking design challenge that your students can complete in a single day. Need a creative alternative to watching a movie on the last day of a quarter? Looking for something innovative to do when you're finished testing? This free design challenge might just be perfect for you.
Let us know how you use it using the hashtag #GDD16
Also, we'd love for you to sign up your class on this Google Form so we know how many students and educators are taking part in the Global Day of Design (should only take one minute): SIGN UP YOUR CLASS HERE
Finally, if you are looking to use Snapchat during the Global Day of Design, I've put the PNG file of our Snapchat Geo-filter that you can use as a template to create your own geo-filter for your school during #GDD16 (it's way below)!
