Doug, teaching, iPad, children and more...

Doug Wittnebel, design director, Gensler San Ramon, taught a class of third and fourth grade students how to draw on iPads at Sand Hill School in Palo Alto, a school that serves students who show signs of learning differences, inattention, and/or social challenges.


Doug engaged the students with his own iPad drawings and showed them how to “paint” with the app. By utilizing technology to bring art back into the classroom as a therapeutic measure for children with learning differences, Gensler hopes to raise awareness of the importance of art in schools. The third and fourth graders are already using iPads for select activities.
