Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, May 24, 4:45 PM

Join the conversation @SD4Ed. Learn about students design for education, a movement to transform education in Rhode Island, and hopefully across the country!

 

Students Design For Education (SD4E) is a groundbreaking initiative to create the first student-designed school. SD4E is driven by 24 ingenious students, powered by 1 killer design process, and guided by the gumption of three partners in Rhode Island to change the national conversation on education and build a new kind of school.

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, May 25, 4:21 AM

Check out this student designed school effort...first in the country!!
