Using Technology to Enhance Design Thinking and Creativity in Teachers

Our current projects focus on enhancing students’ design thinking and creativity using a variety of technologies, including blogging, Scratch, 3D printing and 3D modeling. We design curricula, assessments, and tools to support and evaluate students’ creativity and design thinking in these contexts.
