Empathetic Design: A Sustainable Approach to School Change
Submitted by Marcia (Marty) Hill on
Educational leaders have the capacity to effect change within the system. Principals and others gained a deeper understanding of the student and teacher school experience from shadowing a student for a day. Themes for change included strengthening community, structural changes in the school day, supporting connectivity, and finding new opportunities. This presentation provides the results of a qualitative content analysis framed in empathetic design thinking and based on personal experiences, observations, and reflections influencing future actions.
