Design Do Discover at CI 2017

I’m so excited for this!

For the last 4 years, I’ve watched jealously as Angi Chau and Jaymes Dec built Design Do Discover into a powerhouse MakerEd event. The first D3 happened right when I moved to Korea, and I had just resigned myself into watching the proceedings on Twitter for eternity.

Then last June, I posted on twitter when we landed in SFO. Almost immediately Angi asked if I had flow in for D3 at Castelleja and invited me to join the fun as a last-minute coach. What fun! I finally got a chance to work alongside Angi, Jaymes, Heather Pang, Lindsey Own and so many other MakerEd / Fablearn allstars. More importantly, I was able to connect with a host of maker-interested teachers from around the Bay Area. Really, it’s the best way to deal with jet lag.

Back in Korea, I was asked to build a list of MakerEd or Design PD opportunities for Chadwick faculty. Despite the great and growing crop of events in the states, I couldn’t find any good anglophone options for D3 (and Constructing Modern Knowledge’s) brand of deep dive learning anywhere in Asia. Chadwick is generous with PD funds, but the costs and strain of trans-Pacific flights made even the most affordable events into a steep ask.

As a direct result, we’re now accepting registrations for Design Do Discover at Chadwick International, March 24th – 26th 2017.

If you can’t find the tool you need, build it yourself, right? In this case, it’s built with the cooperation and guidance of Jaymes and Angi personally as well as Marymount and Castelleja.

We’re offering the same learner-focused, material-rich, expert-strewn environment as D3 at Marymount and Castelleja, but here in Songdo. We’re bringing over several veteran coaches from previous D3s, as well as experts from international schools and our local community.

If you’re an international educator interested in building the hands-on skills necessary to bring MakerEd experiences into your classroom, come join us at Design Do Discover!
