How can we develop new ways to personalize learning?
Partners: The Green River Regional Educational Cooperative (GRREC) and Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative (OVEC)
Type: Professional development
As part of a Race to the Top Innovation grant, Ei partnered with two regional educational cooperatives in Kentucky to provide design thinking training and consultation to school innovation teams and regional instructional support leaders.
The Green River Regional Educational Cooperative (GRREC) and Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative (OVEC) won a federal Race to the Top grant with a plan to help 125 schools across 22 districts identify innovative strategies to personalize student learning. GRREC and OVEC offered a range of workshops and other supports to help schools identify and implement their strategies. Ei was brought in to provide design thinking capacity, both for school teams to learn the process so they could use it to develop their school’s innovation focus, and for regional instructional leaders, so they could develop capacity to facilitate and coach teams through the design process during the grant period and beyond.
