Designing Education

Artist: Becky Slogeris

The obstacles to creating meaningful learning experiences are obvious. For a teacher overwhelmed with benchmarks and testing standards, taking the time to conceive of ways to engage students is daunting and time-consuming. How can design make supplemental curriculums desirable and easy for teachers to implement in classrooms so that students aren't merely being taught to a test? "Designing Education" works with select non-profits and Baltimore City agencies to pilot teaching tools and alternative curriculums in Baltimore City Public Schools.
