Overview
The Business Innovation Factory’s Student Experience Lab uses human-centered design to develop new education models. The lab will conduct research to better understand the issues and successes traditional public schools experience when attempting to implement deeper learning practices; test a practitioner cohort model that spreads deeper learning among educators; and produce video content around strategies for increasing deeper learning in public schools. This work challenges assumptions that deeper learning–focused schools must be purpose-built institutions, demonstrates the potential for school leaders to transform existing public schools, and inspires educators to have a "hacker" mindset.
