An Education Revolution has begun, but what’s that got to do with designers?

Caoimhe and Emma believe that design is the secret weapon that the revolution needs. During this talk they will introduce some of the key figures and ideology surrounding the revolution. They will explore how technology and design are currently changing the educational landscape and will highlight where they believe opportunities exist for designers to make an impact.

Caoimhe and Emma are industrial designers who want to change the world, one classroom at a time. They are members of the multidisciplinary TFE Research and Design group based in NCAD and are currently engaged in creating innovative solutions for learning environments. Both are passionate about incorporating design thinking in education and are part of the team behind Hedge School Dublin, a design camp for secondary school students taking place during Innovation week. They both have short brown hair and have been accused by colleagues of always agreeing on everything. This is not the case.
