Empowering educators to unleash social innovation in any grade and subject.
Our blended learning course, Education for Social Innovation, provides K-12 educators with a grasp of essential concepts and techniques in the areas of design thinking, student voice, and global citizenship. With a project-based learning approach, each educator is guided through the process of developing a project to implement immediately in their own classroom, co-created with their students and connected to the curriculum.
The course involves a full-day orientation session and five 90 minute online sessions over a two month period, providing opportunities for reading, reflection, and experimentation with course concepts in the classroom. We can offer the course to Ministries of Education for national or provincial implementation, school districts, or individual schools. Contact us to learn more!
In partnership with the Toronto District School Board, Education for Social Innovation was offered to 90 K-12 teachers across more than 20 schools. A co-design team of lead educators helped to finalize the curriculum and co-facilitate sessions in clusters across the city. The Social Innovation Student Showcase was held as a culminating event on May 21, 2015 at the Ontario Science Centre. This was made possible by additional funding from the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure and the Cisco Foundation.
