Hacking the Research Paper with Human-Centered Design: Communicating Conclusions & Taking Informed Action
Hosted by ABC-CLIO's library partner, School Library Connection
Presented by Jacquelyn Whiting, Innovation and Technology Specialist, and Meredith Ramsey, High School Social Studies Teacher
Thursday, January 16 • 5pm EST / 2pm PST
What does it mean to bring human-centered design to student learning in the classroom? It starts with moving from assignments that ask students to "prove you understand" toward those that encourage them to "use this knowledge to make a difference."
But it's more than just a shift in assignment language. Human-centered design creates an opportunity for students to discover passion for a project, apply newfound knowledge to a situation they can see firsthand in their own lives, and strengthen problem solving skills through direct, positive action.
Learn the steps to transform your research assignments into human-centered projects in the classroom with road-tested, easy-to-replicate exercises and web-based resources that will nurture your students' empathy and strengthen their talents for collaboration, creativity, and inquiry.
Join this webinar to learn how to:
- Promote design thinking in six simple steps
- Increase student engagement and learning through research projects that align with the C3 Framework and AASL Standards
- Foster problem-solving collaborations with colleagues and students
