The LAUNCH Cycle in Action During Global Day of Design


Wow! It was an amazing rush to see so many students making, designing, building, and creating yesterday for the first ever Global Day of Design. Students and teachers did a fantastic job of curating, sharing, and launching this work out into the world using the Hashtag #GDD16 on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Here is the full Storify of the hundreds of tweets, pictures, and videos shared yesterday during the Global Day of Design. I’ve also listed below (all the way below) the schools that participated and filled in the Google Form. If you participated but did not get a chance to fill in the form, please add your school to the comment section at the bottom of this post.

Finally, we are looking for blog entries to share the stories of GDD16 on our blog at If you have a story to share please email me at so we can add it to the site!

Thanks again for inspiring myself and so many others with your work to pull off this day for our students. Here’s the Storify. Enjoy!
