Washington, DC2024 National School Redesign Showcase
A year-long collaboration bringing together students, teachers, schools, and policy makers to design school experiences so they are places people want to be.
School Redesign Showcase
What if we asked the folks who experience high schools and middle schools every day – students and teachers – to be at the center of efforts to design them so they are a place everyone in the school wants to be, places that launch all students on a pathway to adult success – and then share their ideas to inspire and inform others.
We want to share with you an exciting opportunity to do this: The National School Redesign Showcase organized by the Everyone Graduates Center, at Johns Hopkins University invites middle and high school teams of students, teachers, school leaders, and community members to work together to redesign their schools as places everyone wants to be.
Focused Design Sessions
Watch experts at design IDEO go through a project to show how they integrate the needs of people in the design of everything and anything.
Why Redesign ?
Now more than ever, it’s clear that our current educational system was not designed to provide pathways to life success for ALL of our young people.
School redesign affords educators the opportunity to co-create a space where all want to be – adults and students alike – elevating the insights of teachers, students, and families that allow a manifestation of educational experiences that are designed to be of service for all.
