Ashley is a design thinker, brand strategist, and educator passionate about bringing design thinking into K-12 schools and mission-driven organizations. She consults with organizations and teams to bring human-centered strategy, mindsets, and content to their work.
We cover a ton of ground in this conversation. If you're a current or aspiring design thinking educator I think there's a lot here for you. If you have ideas, resources, areas of DT that you'd like to hear covered on no such think I hope you'll come find me on twitter, @malesser.
A quote mentioned in the episode from Paulo Freire:
"There is no such thing as a neutral education process. Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate the integration of generations into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity to it, or it becomes the ‘practice of freedom’, the means by which men and women deal critically with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world."
