At FabLearn 2016 (a conference hosted by the Graduate School of Education, at Stanford), I presented and published an article entitled "Designing Learning Environments for Social Dreaming: from Inquiry to Insight, and Action". This was a study pursued during my Masters Degree at Parsons School of Design. It experiments with the role of design in the context of education, particularly in regards to creating learning environments that foster the student's sense of agency, self-reliance and possibility. Full presentation can be seen here.

How might we create a culture where being quiet, observant, thoughtful, and contemplative strikes a balance with being a doer, entrepreneur, mover and shaker?
