Last Saturday, the first teacher training of the year had been held virtually. Six teachers participated in the training and explored how they could adopt Design Thinking in their school environment. We also invited Andy Ann, the founder of NDN Groups, to share some insights on what entrepreneurship means to him.

Here are some highlights of the training,
