A few months ago education expert Sandy Speicher was kind enough to share her thoughts with me on the question: What’s different when you look at the world ofeducation through the lens of design?

Today I’m proud to share the newly relaunched Design Thinking for Educators toolkit. This toolkit supports teachers in using design thinking tools to become agents of change in their classrooms, schools, and communities by designing more effective curriculum, spaces, tools, and systems. Created in partnership with educators, the toolkit includes real-world classroom experiences and an accompanying workbook to help teachers determine which challenges to address.

Please share this free toolkit with educators in your network, and tell us: What’s your favorite tool in the new Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit?

  1. Thank you so much for creating this and making it available to everyone. It is absolutely wonderful! I can’t wait to put it into practice further.

    On a side note, I can’t quite figure out the font of the main titling (ie. font used for “Design Thinking for Educators). Would it be too much to ask which font it is?


  2. I love this and think there are some great thoughts in here that would also apply to the meeting planning world. Can someone contact me? I’m putting together an article right now.


  3. As I enter into my golden years, I often think about products or ideas that could use some tweaking…and I don’t know where or who to go to with them. Do you have an area for new or improved ideas or products? One example would be to have a germ killing bomb…like a bug bomb but one that would be like Lysol…with so much flu this season that would be a great way to sanitize a wide variety of home items with lots less time and effort. Thanks for letting me ask this…hope I hear back from you.
