PAST ATTENDEE EXPERIENCES

"I loved that SDA allowed our group time to think deeply about what our school needs to be, and showed us how NT will support that vision- it wasn't the other way around trying to make us "fit" NT."
Jenny Medina
District Implementation Coordinator, Bloomfield School District
“The School Design Academy is critical to creating a common vision. We were challenged to reflect on traditional practices that inhibit innovative instructional designs and start to seek authentic student-centered experiences. After the Academy, our team was motivated and equipped to the begin the work of project-based teaching and learning.​”
