Writing in New York

Last week I joined 13 other academics in New York at the Teachers College, Columbia University to review chapters we had each written for a new book on the future of Technology Education.

Inspired by working and debating at the educational home of the great John Dewey we examined each others chapters through the lenses of: Cultural Ways of Knowing; Pedagogy; Assessment; Curriculum; Nature of Technology.

My chapter is largely about ‘Designing’ but increasingly is about the nature of ‘Design Thinking’ and ‘Rethinking Design Thinking’. More to follow on this when I am ready to share but I am grateful to my colleagues below for their interrogation of my ‘thinking’!
