About the Course

In this online course, students will participate in a book study of Launch: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student by John Spencer and A.J. Juliani.
“Something happens in students when they define themselves as makers and inventors and creators. They discover powerful skills—problem-solving, critical thinking, and imagination—that will help them shape the world’s future … our future. The LAUNCH Cycle provides a creative process that can be incorporated into every class at every grade level … even if you don’t consider yourself a ‘creative educator.’ And if you dare to innovate and view creativity as an essential skill, you will empower your students to change the world—starting right now.” Participants in this book study will collaboratively discuss ideas and strategies from the book in online discussion forums, reflect on their teaching practice by writing journal entries, and will make an action plan to incorporate the Launch Cycle into the classroom. This course is appropriate for all K-12 educators and others involved in education.

Reviews

Paul Schkade
This is a very practical class which provides a ton of ideas and details about how to better implement and support design thinking projects with students.
Keslie Steiner
Great class! This reinvigorated me and got me thinking about my job as a teacher: for my students to learn more than for me to teach. Instantly applicable. Realistic expectations for course work. Great feedback.
Michelle Carnes
This class inspired me to create more LAUNCH units into our language arts classes.
