Head's Coffee: Designing Education for the Innovation Age

See our presentation and discussion around “Designing Education for the Innovation Age.” 

We enjoyed sharing insights from our classrooms at a recent Head’s Coffee. The subject of the coffee was “Designing Education for the Innovation Age.” Mrs. Caroline Thomas (kindergarten), Ms. Casey Davis (4th grade), and Mrs. Mary-Bridget Martin (7th/8th grade science) described what learning looks like in each of their classrooms. The common theme? Rather than sitting at desks and memorizing facts for a test, Mason Prep students are up and moving, asking questions, and participating.

This way of teaching – design-focused and learner-centered – is nothing new at Mason Prep but may be quite a bit different than how parents remember learning when they were in school. We were thrilled to be able to share these meaningful, memorable lessons and explain how they can be used to reach each individual learner and get students excited about learning.
