We partnered with the I-Think Initiative to propose ideas for bringing together educators. After interviewing educators from kindergarten to post-secondary, we found they are eager to learn from each other across academic levels, to teach real-life skills, and to continually innovate. Educators want professional and social support as they experiment with the best ways to move education forward. When they are embedded in strong communities, they can innovate, seek understanding, and grow. We suggested short- and long-term experiences that would help them meet these needs.
Through our methods insights were organized under two key themes:
- Challenges to Changing Education
- Education as an Ecosystem
These themes aimed to explore our insights further, and supported the research in designing personas, design principles, and draft recommendations. Learn more about the initiative and further insights by accessing the report.
