The development and practice of certain mindsets in learning environments can serve to enhance, engage, and connect with today's students in a more meaningful way. In this hands-on, high-energy session, we will explore ways to build and nurture innovative design thinking mindsets daily in our classrooms and communities.

Practicing human-centered mindsets is crucial to building a community of learners who embrace risk-taking, creative problem-solving, and collaboration and have a bias towards action. How might we provide opportunities for students to grow in their learning by empowering mindful, intentional daily practice of these mindsets? Participants will engage in activities that can be brought back and experienced directly and immediately in their own communities.
