Design Thinking Through STEAM Education

One Best Thing Design Thinking

Last year when I attended the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute, I spent considerable time developing ideas for a digital book that highlighted a lesson or idea worth sharing with other educators.  I am thrilled my book was chosen and highlighted in iBooks with 102 other educators from around the world.  Download my book “Inventing a Better World: Design Thinking Through STEAM Education” for free:

Another special highlight is that Apple decided to place my digital book in the Science and Math category.  Right, I am an art teacher but Apple felt my lesson integrates so well with science, engineering, and math that the STEAM model fit perfectly within those disciplines.  I think that is a win! :)

You MUST check out the other amazing digital books in iBooks created by Apple Distinguished Educators.  Look beyond the categories — you will find some amazing ideas that you can apply to your own teaching, even if it is not in your own discipline.
