Bringing Student Insights
to the Forefront

One of the main reasons that Design Thinking is the chosen facilitation process in designing NEXTschool is its integral focus on human needs.  In this case, the humans are students! In order to get past their own inevitable assumptions and biases, EXPLOREteachers have taken on a number of initiatives to listen to the student perspective, to dig deep on pulling out their insights and ideas, and to giving them the opportunity to help build and iterate their prototypes.
