In this paper I have compiled my research and reflections on what I gained from empathizing with my users (teachers). The problem I’m trying to address this semester is that many teachers in America don’t feel like they have the time to innovate and collaborate. This is a serious problem as teachers, arguably more that any time in history, have to be creative and innovative in their craft. By the end of the semester I hope to have gained insights into how to help teachers get (or feel like they’re getting) more time. I do hope you’ll follow along.
