T.J. Edwards: From Project to Passion
Describing himself as a “recovering engineer” compelled by design thinking, T.J. Edwards shared the story of how his students created a 3D-printed, prosthetic hand for Alex – a user they matched with via eNable. By getting to know a person’s needs, we can transform mere projects into purposes…and we can make school more about this work. “These problems that are worth solving are everywhere. And there’s no sense in us as teachers, as educators, inventing problems to be solved in our classrooms because there’s millions of them right at our fingertips if you just talk to somebody.”
