Building on an acclaimed International design education program, Taylor will present interdisciplinary thinking and the use of a technology design studio p/k-12+ that unlocks the grid of teacher/textbook centered learning, giving power to students. The presentation will address “Technical Studios as Art, unlocking the traditional “power grid” in education which is stifling our teachers and students. This presentation offers an antidote to present day educational delivery systems from which many young students are dropping out. Developmental rights of students drive the design of learning environments that actually teach based on ecosophy and research that underpins future education.
