Educated by Design: Designing the Space to Experiment, Explore, and Extract Your Creative Potential


Michael Cohen, known as The Tech Rabbi, is a designer and technologist turned educator. As a speaker, writer and creativity instigator, he’s on a mission to help young people develop the creative confidence they need to become challenge seekers and solution designers.

He works with schools, institutions and businesses to help them create or refine opportunities for students to leverage technology, media creation and digital age skills in ways that foster inquiry and the drive to solve the complex challenges of our global society.



Creativity is about seeing the world differently. It’s about coming up with unconventional ways to express ideas and solve “impossible” problems. Creativity is within reach for everyone.

Yes. Even you.

No one expects to run—much less win—a marathon without preparation. Such endeavors require training and practice. Lots of practice and even some slips and falls along the way. In Educated by Design, Michael Cohen (aka The Tech Rabbi) explains that creativity is no different. When creativity is clearly defined and intentionally practiced, all educators can improve the design they bring to their students’ learning experiences.

So many people look at others’ success and criticize themselves for not being artistic or talented. In reality, creativity is a mindset that anyone can develop and grow. In this book, Cohen gives you the guidance you need to boost your creative courage and extract your own creative potential. With a little practice, you might just discover that creativity can change the world.
