Professional Development Session at Nightingale!

D3 facilitators Danny and Kim led Nightingale teachers through a fast paced design challenge utilizing the D3 methodology.  The challenge was to re-imagine the experience of walking through the hallway at Nightingale.  Teachers partnered up and walked through each stage of the Dream it, Design it, Do it sequence to design new systems of hallway communication and wayfinding, that captured the personalities and reflected the goals of each of the teachers.  We had a lot of fun and hope that this experience served to demonstrate the potential to use D3 and a resource for learning.

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
