We connect theory to practice around creative leadership.
What is at our core?
We believe people are transformed by experience and reflection upon those experiences. We believe people are transformed by doing super rad (i.e., sophisticated, original and creative) work that meets the needs of an authentic user. We believe big change starts with small courageous acts.
Teachers are the innovators we need. We use human-centered design to activate teacher creativity and to equip educators with the tools, processes, and mindsets to confidently meet the ever-changing needs of students and our schools. We also know teachers need conscientious principals who have their backs.
We seek to disrupt generational poverty.
Innovation in education is not a destination nor a final product, but rather a way of thinking and behaving to support schools to continually create value for members of their community. We use a unique form of human-centered design to unearth unarticulated needs of users, to develop prototypes, and to test those ideas rapidly with an eye toward (re)iteration. The innovation is creating innovators, not innovations, creating local innovation ecosystems, and connecting newer communities of practice with more established networks.
