From Prototype to Pitch

Eric Walters, at Marymount, put together this anthology of stories by educators working with Design Thinking and Making. It's now available on ISSU: https://issuu.com/ericw808/docs/17prototypepitchfinal
I've written a chapter about how we, at Scarsdale, built the case and the mindset for Design and Maker education by working across disciplines to create lessons that can be done in classrooms. Once the Design Lab is finished, we will have teachers ready to use it and students who understand the value of constructing something to demonstrate their understanding of complex knowledge.
