  • Ever since DisneyWorld and DisneyLand, people have realized that designers can create destinations where people will travel to see the work of innovative designers. Today cities as diverse as Dubai City and Cleveland, Ohio have decided to become destination cities based on design.

    K-12 Schools should follow their lead and become design destinations as well. Schools should look more like interactive children's museums rather than corporate office centers or prisons. Schools should mimic pull technologies rather than push technologies and create environments that attract students, educators, and community members. Schools should be places where people enjoy working and learning.
