UPDATED post about our talk over at www.collectiveindwell.com  

It was a great conference to kick-off discussions about national standards for K-12 design education this past weekend!

I enjoyed listening to the interesting talks, especially by Kevin Werbach on "Gamification" and Illah Nourbakhsh on "Robot Futures" from The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Alex and I had fun sharing our thesis work, and were inspired by the passionate educators that share our belief in design's role in the classroom.

Here are couple of photos from our talk (courtesy of @_dominicp):

The conference spurred some ideas for developing our work into an open-source curriculum and set of materials...so keep an eye out for updates on that project coming soon!
