Videos of some final projects from #DesignDoDiscover at @Intl_Chadwick. #d3ci #cihosts #STEAM

Just wanted to gather the videos from this past weekend’s awesome inaugural Design Do Discover in Asia hosted by the wonderful Chadwick International School in Songdo, South Korea. Thank you to coaches Gary Donahue and Andrew Carle of Chadwick, Jaymes Dec of The Marymount School in New York, and Sarah Barnum of The Castilleja School in California!

Here’s the Maneki Neko cat I made with Alice Cha, Landy Hwang, and Ivy Choi:

Pics & notes from makerspace and inquiry classes at @Chadwick_Int! #d3CI #STEAM #elemedchat #MakerEd

I had such such a great day observing a couple of classes at Chadwick International School as a prequel to Design Do Discover CI (which begins later this afternoon). @AngiChau and colleagues at The Castilleja School in Palo Alto, CA founded Design Do Discover (D3). At some point, the head of Castilleja was chatting with the head of The Marymount School in New York City, so @JaymesDec got involved in planning an NYC edition of D3. D3 evolved into an annual summer event which alternates between the West Coast and the East Coast. Separately, Jaymes met Andrew Carle (@tieandjeans)  and Gary Donahue (@GaryMDonahue), both of Chadwick, over the years at Constructing Modern Knowledge. This fall, Andrew approached Jaymes and Angi about launching a D3 in South Korea. I saw Jaymes tweet about #D3CI and jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this experience. Fortuitously, I planned on being in Asia anyway to visit my besties in Bangkok and help launch edcampBKK (the first edcamp in Thailand!), so it all worked out pretty perfectly. 🙂

Here are some snapshots from Gary’s class where students collaborated on Grade 4 Garden Design Challenges. I loved that the class teachers are in the classroom learning/facilitating as well:

Here are scenes from Andrew’s awesome inquiry class exploring yurts as part of a Grade 3 study of Structures:

And here are some random pics from around Chadwick International School’s campus.The school is massive and modern with lots of bright, airy learning spaces:
