In terms of educational reforms and innovations, learners don’t need more or better. Many need different. Their intelligence and intensities are so unique that even the most innovative classrooms aren’t innovative enough.

Participants will learn how a multiage, design thinking, maker ed environment supports the social, emotional, and academic needs of all learners.
