Teachers as Designers

Innovative Teaching and Learning occurs when teachers embrace their roles as designers of powerful learning experiences that foster equity and prepare students for a changing world.  

The following services are designed to push thinking and inspire meaningful change. We seek to create learning environments where teachers effectively leverage technology and draw upon pedagogical practices (i.e project based learning and design thinking) that support students to be productive learners, workers, and citizens.

To harness the power in each of us, we need to create systems that allow for more personal learning experiences and tap into the strengths and potential of each individual. When we empower our K-12 learners to know how they’re uniquely designed, we know from research that they will find more relevancy in their learning and be more engaged and present in the classroom. But to empower our learners to know themselves, we must start by knowing ourselves first. In this one-day workshop, we explore our own strengths, interests, and values and tinker our way to better schools that empower all learners to discover their place in the world. Note: this workshop will require approximately 1 hour of pre-work, including taking two measures: the Gallup StrengthsFinder and the Strong Interest Inventory.
