What is this strand of work? 

The Design and Innovation Opt-In Team is an opportunity for technology leaders to work together over the course of the year to create and test a theory of action about a specific challenge related to instructional technology and implementation of the CCSS-M. 

Through this work, district leaders will build their capacity to lead a design thinking cycle, in their local context, around a challenge related to CCSS-M implementation (aligned with their district's prioritized implementation goals). This process will include action research, developing a prototype, and testing a hypothesis. When challenges are determined, districts will engage in collaborative communities to ensure best practices and common pitfalls are being shared. After participating in this strand of work, district leaders will be equip with the knowledge, skills and mindset to continue identifying challenges and solving them through a lens of design thinking.
