We help schools design innovative culture + curriculum to create learning environments where teachers love to teach and students love to learn.
Our value to K - 12 schools is we engage, elevate, and retain excellent teachers.
HOW WE DO IT
1. SELF-STUDY: DesignEd conducts a self-study of the school and reports findings to leadership. The self-study includes surveys and interviews to gather both data and stories from all school populations (teachers, students, parents) to give everyone a voice and to tell a complete story of a school’s needs and opportunities.
2. TRAIN: Then we train a strategically chosen design team or whole faculty in design thinking in one to three day workshops where we learn the framework and design prototypes based on the self-study findings.
3. APPLY: We help you and your teachers test the prototypes throughout the year, ultimately creating an innovative culture + curriculum where we measure a culture shift and implementation of design thinking into curriculum design.
WHAT WE OFFER
We offer a variety of services from one-day workshops to year-long contract work to transform a school's culture + curriculum.
