The Concept

Some words about the methodology used in the CoDesign Labs which yielded the ideas for innovation presented on this platform.

These innovative ideas were collectively created and inspired by George Couros' 8 Things to Look For in Today's Classroom. We looked into each of these eight elements of a 21st century classroom and discussed the following:

- Why are they relevant?

- What connections can be made to our context?

- How might they help us fulfill our mission of facilitating unique learning experiences?

The reflections and discussions that sparked around these '8 Things' were the springboard for the project ideas that you will read about on this platform.

The ideas that made it to this platform were the most voted ones by the leadership groups during the CoDesign Labs.

The 8 Things to Look for in Today's Classroom

These are the elements that inspired the groups to reflect on various aspects of our current reality and generate the ideas that are being presented on this platform.

The 4 P's of Creative Learning

These are the elements that inspired the groups to reflect on various aspects of our current reality and generate the ideas that are being presented on this platform. The 4 P's also inspired the group of teachers participating in the FAC CoDesign Lab. They also got inspiration from George Couros's 8 Things above.

Watch professor Mitch Resnick from the MIT Media Lab's Lifelong Kindergarten explain the 4 P's of creative learning.
