Teachers Guild is a wonderful professional growth tool as well as a great tool to practice design thinking as an educator and collaborator. The platform lets you review solutions proposed by educators nationwide on topics like digital citizenship, innovative learning spaces, engaging students in STEM etc., I have found it as a treasure trove of awesome ideas. I would recommend it to folks who want inspiration or feel stuck on various topics and want to seek out concrete ways to try new approaches to complex problems. It has also expanded my network and connected me with other passionate educators!
I love the tool but am disappointed that they are switching out their old system this summer. It was easy when the teacher could purchase through Google Play. Our English teachers are looking for a replacement. Tons of text questions lost and so they’re hoping to find a nice replacement that allows for collaboration- viewing of student progress through text and the ability for teachers to collect student responses. Any leads on this would be appreciated!
This was an excellent resource. I was able to get connected with a design thinking coach who helped me with learning more about the process. I don’t know if they plan to host another online design thinking activity–but it had a wonderful interface and I was definitely inspired to do more with design thinking!
