Thinking like a designer, doing like a super teacher - workshop’

By Gabiel Diaz Maggioli


Design thinking offers teachers a novel way of approaching their job. Just like a designer attempts solutions for clients, a teacher attempts solutions to learning quandaries. In this workshop, we will explore design thinking by engaging in a series of tasks around the use of cloze texts. We will explore how to make a "tried, tested and traditional" classroom procedure into a Learning 3.0 tool. We will then collectively apply the design thinking process to the reformulation of other "tried, tested and traditional" teaching tools.


Gabriel Diz Maggioli

Gabriel Diaz Maggioli is a teacher who applies the lessons learned in the classroom to his roles as educational consultant, teacher educator, researcher and author. He lives in Montevideo, Uruguay but is fortunate to be able to share his theories-in-practice with colleagues in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and East Asia.
