Er wordt hard gewerkt aan voorbereiding Designathon! Vast een voorproefje door even terug te blikken op zomerlab: https://www.flickr.com/photos/91070382@N02/sets/72157645822855655/…

At the Summer Lab, 16 children ages 9-13 designed and made robots to improve their city. We also built a solar cell lamp, learned to solder, played with Makey Makey and philosophied about inventions, are they inherently good or bad? Unexpect designs labs where children learn to design a better world using new technologies. Photos by Matthew Montgomery of www.noctilumens.net Thanks!

Hallo, I am loving these course materials as they present a piece of puzzle I have been working on. I design and deliver creative and social thinking programs for children and teenagers. Based in Amsterdam I have worked in 14 countries, in the last 10 years and I am often tasked with bringing the creativity into education practices. The thinking on mindsets, children's agency and specific feedback is very helpful. Now as a creativity advocate I am wondering why the Deeper Learning definition doesn't mention creativity, in it's place is problem solving, I'd love to know the thinking behind this.
