Oslo Edtech Cluster are happy to collaborate with World Education (WE) Foundation, Oslo Medtech Cluster and Studio Saasen on several events focused around Design Thinking. We have decided to make a week of it, with an intro to a Design Thinking seminar on Tuesday 5 April and a two-day workshop exploring and creating prototypes for the future of learning on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 April. Save the dates!

Tuesday 5 April, 8-10am: Intro to Design Thinking

Breakfast seminar at Forskningsparken

Marques Anderson of WE Foundation, professor Mark Kroeckel from New York University and Osthinks, along with his former student and founder of Studio Saasen Marie Saasen, will give an introduction to the concept of Design Thinking and how it can be applied in developing and implementing projects to solve real challenges.

Thursday 7 (1-4pm) – Friday 8 (9.00-16.30) April: Workshop on designing tools for the Future of Learning

Here we are digging deeper and designing concepts focused on creating tools for the 21st century classroom and learner. We are inviting the edtech industry, teachers, designers, architects, students and coders.

This workshop will serve as a pilot in creating a system of innovation which approaches, designs and solves real challenges in the areas of knowledge, tech and learning. This ecosystem will promote and develop cross-disciplinary collaboration, through the lens of Human Centered Design Thinking.
