Bayside Stem Academy Teachers Take To The Streets

A key focus of the K12 Lab’s work at Bayside is supporting teachers as they integrate design thinking and content learning.  Our exciting October 4th session concentrated on Empathy skills.  The teachers spent 3 hours learning how to effectively gain empathy with others in a variety of ways including:

  • Interviewing
  • Observing
  • Watching videos about peoples’ daily processes
  • Exploring an Empathy Box (a box containing someone’s personal artifacts)

This focused training module is the second of eight sessions planned for the year.  Each session will have a different focus relating to elements of design thinking.
