Transformational Leadership and Design Module: Currently, three groups of iDiploma students are engaged in three rounds of challenges solving for assistive technology needs. Through the rounds students will:
- use project type (wood working, electronics, 3D printing) to get acquainted with protocols, tools and materials available
- use specific deliverables to learn how we work
- understand human centered design practice
- learn how to use strengths within a team setting
- reflect on personal strengths and growth as well as teammates
As each round continues, the builds become more sophisticated because of the intentional pause for internal critique and reflection.
Through a partnership with Georgia Tools for Life – a non profit dedicated to testing and delivering assistive tech to people in need helped our students realize their “aHa” moment as they viewed a seemingly endless wall of assistive devices – each with it’s own story of how it made someone’s life easier – more independent – with restored dignity.
