Design Thinking: In the Classroom and Beyond

by Oct 7, 2019

Today on the show, we are joined by Jason Vest, a passionate Richmond middle school teacher as well as the host of “AfterEd.”  Jason aims to challenge and shape the world of education to better prepare grade school students to face the world of tomorrow. Through promoting critical design thinking skills and encouraging thought leadership at an early age, Jason is turning quite a few heads across the country.
