Empathy and School Design – EMPATHIZING

EMPATHIZING
Over the past several months, I started with empathizing as I set out on the exciting path to build Educate78’s School Design Lab.  Our audacious vision is for the lab to support school design teams in creating high quality, innovative new schools.

In launching this work, I am thoroughly relishing my first round of empathizing.  In a relatively short amount of time, I had the opportunity to: watch and listen, engage, and observe from an incredible cast of courageous educators and innovators taking on the task of transforming our schools.
