Teacher Visits CA to Examine Design Thinking

In November, BHS teacher Peter LaMoreaux participated in a week long JASON Learning Argonaut program.  Mr. LaMoreaux traveled to Silicon Valley and San Francisco to visit several different companies with the lens of redesigning curriculum to better incorporate Design Thinking.  He visited and had conversations with representatives from the following:

  • Apple
  • Facebook/Oculus
  • Google
  • California Academy of Sciences
  • Stanford University
  • Meltwater
  • Obvious Ventures
  • IDEO – Design Firm
  • iNaturalist
  • Bloomlife

In this podcast, Mr. LaMoreaux discusses the trip with BHS senior Akshay Gupta.

The Argonaut group was comprised of representatives from West Virginia, Texas, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, and New York.  The trip consisted of teachers, students, a superintendent, and a Board of Education member.

The trip provided a rich insight into innovative business operations that will ultimately help to better prepare our students for their future endeavours.
