Education Experience Design (EDU/X) for K-12:
Creating Meaningful Learning Experiences for Our Students
and Staff

Presented by Douglas Konopelko
K-12 Education Strategist, CDW-G,
Palm City, Fla.
Tuesday, October 12 • 5 p.m. ET

As a former teacher, school administrator, district instructional tech leader, consultant and now education strategist, Douglas has seen the education ecosystem from many different perspectives. Through these experiences, he has realized that we often approach our lessons, decisions, planning and strategy in isolation. By not considering how one decision plays into the many others that happen throughout a day or how that decision plays out for our actual students, teachers and leaders, we miss an amazing opportunity. That’s where EDU/X comes in. Join this chat to find out how to borrow, augment and adapt tenets from user experience design for the K-12 world.
