Available courses

In this asynchronous course,  educators will participate in an overview of JASON, including JASON’s philosophy, curricula, and available resources. Educators will learn how to access standard alignments and identify the curriculum collections best suited for their needs. This includes tips and strategies for on-boarding students and navigating the JASON platform. Participants will have time to explore and share ideas. 

(1.0 credit hours)

Argonauts will work with JASON staff over four sessions to learn and practice the process of Design Thinking:

  • How to emphasize with end-users of a product or service
  • Define the problem to be solved
  • Generate innovative ideas
  • Build prototypes
  • Test solutions
  • Iterate and improve
Argonauts will also practice “thinking like an entrepreneur” so they’ll understand how innovations survive and endure in real-world markets.

The challenges that Houstonians face are increasing in size, frequency and complexity.  How can we work together to create a greater Houston area where all individuals regardless of age, gender, race and socioeconomic status thrive instead of merely surviving?  JASON Learning created the Design Thinking Ambassador Program to support school districts and educators in their efforts to develop STEM literate students who are able to effectively influence decision makers and advocate for themselves and their communities.  Released in the Spring of 2020, the Resilient Houston framework is used as a resource to identify goals and challenge areas for the greater Houston area.
