Discover innovation in learning with experts from Stanford's d.school
August 9, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
As The Idea Center at Miami Dade College introduces our new program, Design For Miami, we invite you to a discussion with Ariel Raz, Learning Experience Designer at Stanford University’s d.School.
Ariel will share with us his experience with Design Thinking and discuss how we can solve the world’s biggest problems through radical collaboration.
Ariel Raz is driven by the belief that teaching is a creative profession. He taught middle school math with Teach for America in New Orleans and was a founding member of KIPP Bloom in the Chicago Southside. In 2014 Ariel began a master’s program in learning, design & technology that culminated in iCanGo, a story building tool for parents of children on the Autism spectrum. He is now a learning experience designer with the K12 Lab Network at the Stanford dschool.
Ariel’s presentation will be accompanied by an information session about Design for Miami, which launches in September. This 12-week program will teach you design thinking as you work in teams on projects to improve the lives of Miamians living at or below the poverty line.
