Grants to this Grantee
for support of organizational diversity, equity and inclusion capacity to advance educational equity
for a School Hackers reality TV-style school transformation show and crowd-sourced online platform
The Business Innovation Factory Student Experience Lab uses human-centered design to develop and share new models of education. This grant would support the creation of a video series that features a team of experts assisting a traditional public school in the process of transforming itself (through no/low-cost "do it yourself" solutions) into a deeper learning environment; it will also create a crowd-sourced online platform for sharing school improvement ideas. This grant supports the Program’s goals of providing proof-points that challenge the assumption that schools focused on deeper learning must be new, purpose-built institutions, and demonstrate that it is possible for school leaders to transform their own existing, traditional public schools.
