About Designing Education
In too many schools and classrooms todays students are bored and teachers are overwhelmed. The obstacles to creating relevant and engaging learning experiences are numerous. Teachers are overwhelmed with benchmarks and testing standards, resources are limited, and lesson planning is time-consuming. How might we design new ways of teaching and learning so that students aren't merely being taught to a test but engaging in real world issues and learning how to become change-making citizens? Designing Education works with non-profits, city agencies, schools, and districts to pilot innovative teaching tools and alternative curricula.
