Design Thinking describes problem solving by prioritizing the consumer's needs above all else. It relies on observing, with empathy, how people interact with their environments, and employs an iterative, hands-on approach to creating innovative solutions.
ModSchool borrows the proven success of Design Thinking and applies it to Dynamic Learning in a hands-on, virtual environment. There are many well-researched benefits of interdisciplinary, authentic learning compared to more traditional pedagogical methods of separating subject areas such as math, writing, and more, such as increased motivation, engagement, and achievement.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that the current generation of students know how to synthesize and transfer knowledge of multiple disciplines in order to creatively solve complex problems. Our team of educators have designed a curriculum of rigorous and relevant projects that incorporate the sciences and humanities, while adapting to newly emerging technologies in virtual and hybrid education.
