Creativity by Design

This year in Form II technology class, Academic Technology Specialist Mr. Droke conducted research on developing the creative confidence of students through the Design Thinking process. In July, he will present his findings at the International Boys School Coalition annual conference in Cape Town, South Africa. The boys were tasked to collaboratively reevaluate and redesign the New York City subway system to meet the needs of people in the year 2035. Mr. Droke was pleased to see the boys improve their creative confidence and problem-finding skills over their semester in class. Watch the video below to hear the boys explain their ideas and to see the process they worked through. Read more about the entire project on Mr. Droke's research blog.
