I had the pleasure of attending the Integrated Learning Summer Institute Teachers Conference, last week (August 11-14th) Amazing professional educators listening and learning from others in the trenches keeping empathetic project based learning the focus in education.  I was asked to lead a MacGyverClass! workshop at the conference for a handful of elementary and middle school teachers. The workshop went really well and had a lot of great thinking, making, and  conversation. If you're a teacher, do yourself a favor and learn more about the ILSI.  There's loads of great stuff happening!
