Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: What Is "Interdisciplinary Geography"? - 5 Animations To Get Kids Excited About Maps

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: What Is "Interdisciplinary Geography"? - 5 Animations To Get Kids Excited About Maps | Putting Kids First! Heard County School District | Scoop.it
Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education, or ASIDE, seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking. Integrating the design of information into the daily conversation is an essential part of the teacher's toolkit and the purpose of the ASIDE blog. The underpinning of innovation and educational design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. ASIDE's goal is to bring together as much information, resources and supportive scholarship in one place for teaching and learning.
