This session will guide educators through Design Thinking with hands-on activities, while also introducing them to creative mindsets and being innovative in the classroom. Innovation is not a buzz word. In education, true innovation is not fearing change and being open to experimentation. One tool to being innovative in the classroom is Design Thinking. It is a process to problem-solving that involves five stages: Empathy, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test. As creative leaders, educators can be effective innovators by teaching students to have learner-centered mindsets that involve being Empathetic, Collaborative, Equitable, Optimistic, Experimental, and Storytelling. As one of ten national IDEO Teachers Guild Fellows, Theresa Shadrix received hands-on training in Design Thinking, Human-Centered Design, and Creative Leadership. MB-S18223
