Design a Defense

Today at C:/dags, D3 facilitators met with teachers to plan for the development of two distinct and exciting projects for the new year.  First, Mr. Garcia and Mrs. Se are teaming up to develop a “Discovery Mission” that will integrate Algebra and Chemistry content. Students will design digital games that will replace final tests for those classes over the course of next semester.
We will also be working with Mr. Miller’s class next semester to support the mock trial unit. Working with his class as well as outside professional attorneys, the goal will be to consider every aspect of the trial experience, and seek ways to make it feel more real through design.  We had a productive initial planning session and discussed topics ranging from space and props, to clothing and communication systems.

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.
