Jenn and Trey are back with a brand spanking new episode of This Is Iterative. This episode opens season three where there will be new voices from designers, educators, and you know... people. The subject... EMPATHY! Jump in with us!
Today on the show we connect with T.J Edwards (@TJEdwards62) the Director of Maker, Design, and Engineering for Mount Vernon Presbyterian School's Upper School MDE program. We discuss the vocabulary and language in the rising maker movement in education (#makered), creating maker communities, and the value making brings to testing and seeing ideas come to life.
What makes a good question? How do you form great questions? Can you have a "best" question? See what we have done here? Our intro is about questions...
How do we maintain learning? Where do we go to stay plugged in and continue to grow in our design thinking practice? In this episode, Jenn and Trey reflect on their learning habits.
This week we take a break from our typical conversations about design and education and peer into a living room discussion between two new moms. Jenn and Mandy have both been working in education in different ways and together even designed a passion-based learning experience called UExperience. Now they turn their attention to their two sons and how they feel about possibly starting a new school.
In this special episode, Brett Jacobsen from Design Movement, Trey Boden from This Is Iterative, and Allison Toller who is about to debut MVstories talk shop about their podcasts. The conversation introduces listeners to their individual shows and gives an under-the-hood look at why the hosts love producing content.
