One Year, Self-Reflection, and Thank You

Source: ASIDE, 2012
One year ago, we launched our first post on Innovation, Design, and Education and our Mission Statement. We also jumped in feet first into the world of social media and began tweeting. As we look back over the past year, we’ve grown tremendously in the shared environment of other passionate educators. We learned more than we ever imagined doing the research for our posts, and perhaps more importantly, became better teachers as a result.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who provided invaluable feedback on our work, who shared our research with others in the field, and who engaged and followed us in Twitter chats. The communication and collaboration with so many people from design to social awareness truly benefited us as educators.

Our goal was to create a forum for sharing ideas and best practices with others. It started with thinking of design as a process that infused all aspects of learning. We believe teachers, as well as students, are motivated by new and innovative approaches that change the process, and so we began our journey. We firmly believe that to share in designing the learning promotes responsibility, opportunity, and desire. This collaborative environment fosters the exchange of ideas and is closest to the skills needed now and in the future.
As we move into our second year, we hope to continue to bring our readers our best work on innovative design in education. Thank you again for all you have done for us as learners!
