    I have a practical take on how to teach all of this. Students gain creativity and discover their passion by making stuff. Some love to make booklets, some love to learn code, everyone has their own unique blend of talents, which is what I believe the best teachers can help the students discover. Transforming students into sustainable designers involves challenging them to use what they have to solve the problem. Another way is to bring in real people and have the students work with them in a designer/client relationship. Service projects. I have had artists from the community come into my classroom of high school juniors and seniors, and my students came up with branding suggestions and website layouts. They loved it and were transformed from diamonds in the rough to almost polished gems.
