The ASIDE blog

Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education (ASIDE) seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking. Integrating the design of information into the daily conversation is no different from integrating technology into the 21st-century classroom. It is an essential part of the teacher's toolkit. The underpinning of good educational design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. ASIDE's goal is to share technological resources and ideas with citizens, students, and teachers.
