DCT had the distinction of being selected to share our experience and approach to fostering critical thinking, creativity, and self-efficacy fostered in the classroom at TEDxHonolulu back in 2011. This opportunity truly gave us the encouragement to reflect on our practice as well as the begin shaping the direction we wanted to take as we started sharing our approach with other educators around the globe.
Sean and Dan were selected by the Hawai'i State Teachers Association as one of the many representations of innovation created in the classrooms of Hawai'i. The best part of this project was the opportunity to not only share our classroom approach, but to have Kinetic Productions capture our students thoughts and experiences in such a dynamic way was incredible!
