The Future Ready Teacher's Designathon
During Innovation week 2019, The Jenga hub will run a teachers’ and aspiring educators’ training, that will take the form of a workshop, in which we will introduce the concept of applying design thinking in classrooms , as well as providing participants with the basic materials necessary to run a Designathon in their schools. The Designathon method asks children to help shape a better world using technology, by finding solutions to real-world problems. The method integrates well with the existing curriculum
by asking children to apply and revisit subject-specific knowledge as they design solutions to real-world problems. This reduces barriers to implementation on the part of teachers and paves the way for wider adoption into national school curricula.
