Around the world, educators are discovering that a startup mindset will help their schools to rapidly achieve moonshot goals. By engaging in the design process to identify the right problem to solve, educators can use ideation, rapid prototyping and the feedforward process to create technology initiatives that can be successfully scaled.
Through a series of interactive activities, participants will learn how to:
1. Ask the “why” about what you’re doing
2. Build a culture of innovation in your school or district to encourage teams to explore solutions to existing problems.
3. Use the human-centered design process to work with groups to explore multiple solutions for a problem. Use the business model canvas to plan how you’re going to implement.
4. Try your solutions on a small scale with a first and second iteration. 
5. Gather quantitative and qualitative data and create a case study of the results to share with all stakeholders.
6. Use the “yes and” mindset to find ways to grow or pivot your initiative. 
 In this session, participants will go through a design challenge to develop innovative solutions for challenges that they are facing in their classroom or school. Participants will work in teams to discuss challenges, engage in brainstorming solutions, and create a rapid prototype of their solution. Gamestorming activities will engage participants in the process.
