The GTA was introduced with the concept of ‘moonshot thinking’. Here is a video that explains the concept.
Leading up to the GTA, we have been involved in a series of pre-workshop ‘challenges’ (aka “moon shot ideas”) that involve identifying challenges our particular education community faces and immersing ourselves to understand facets of the challenge through ‘immersion’ and design thinking approaches.
Now, you can also undertake this challenge! What are the most significant challenges your face in your school/ university/ community? What is your moonshot idea that you want to achieve? Think about open questions that you and/or your colleagues are most concerned about addressing.
Currently, within the school of computer science, we have been involved in supporting teachers with the implementation of the new computing curriculum and so I will be framing my work in this area. I look forward to the days ahead and the challenges that await!
