Special Message from Perry Local School Teachers!
"Please join us in our two-part professional development seminar entitled Design Thinking Across the Curriculum. 

At Perry Local Schools, we embrace design thinking as a powerful way to engage our students – they think more, we work less when a design learning challenge is at play. Students are challenged to make real-world connections, often beyond our expectation. Learners act as drivers of their own learning outcomes in ways that transfer across the curriculum. 

Design-based learning strategies prepare our students to learn, improve, and apply new skills. We no longer hear "What time is class over?" Rather, students cannot wait to tackle a new design challenge. Make the time to learn, think, and develop your ideas in this PD opportunity!"
