Design, Diversity and Digital Learning: Reframing 21st Century Education

Leigh Abts

Design is a verb and a noun. Design is a process and a product. Design is best served as inclusive. Design can be taught and practiced in the classroom or a remote setting using technology. Design can potentially reframe education and transform the 21st century workforce, starting with a universally accepted ‘credit’ for design, such as an Advanced Placement (AP).

Presented by professor Leigh Abts, of University of Maryland's College of Education and the A. James Clark School of Engineering.
