WW Academy: Design Thinking

At the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning, design thinking is not only a method for building the Academy’s program, but a new way for its master’s candidates to approach the challenges of teaching. The WW Academy is using a tool called the innovators’ compass, designed by Ela Ben-Ur to help candidates move through the design process. Once future teachers are comfortable with the process, it can become practical problem-solving method they can use in the classroom. The WW Academy Design Fellows have also been using the compass when working on elements of the program.

In this video, learn more about how the WW Academy is using this tool to help prepare teachers for the classrooms of today and tomorrow.
