Whether you are designing a completely new learning model or updating your approach as part of ongoing efforts to learn and improve, identifying the outcomes that learners will achieve as a result of their time with you, deliberately designing toward those outcomes, and assessing your progress along the way are critical steps. We created the Graduate Aims Database to help!

Nationally, personalized learning is beginning to be piloted in pockets. Slowly, schools are realizing that the core of personalized learning has less to do with technology, despite tech being a common entry point to pursuing “innovation.” Rather, personalizing learning is about what good educators have always wanted—creating purpose-driven schools that help students live fulfilled lives.
We are thrilled that a number of Yellow Hats are proposing multiple exciting SXSWEdu sessions about accelerating innovation in the core design of school. We invite you to take a look at the great options below and VOTE!
What are the limits to your classroom’s capabilities? The beginning of a new school year provides a great opportunity for teachers to step back and reflect on the accomplishments of previous years. As a classroom, what were we able to achieve? Where did we fall short? What changes do we hope to make?
What is it that makes summer camp so motivating for young people — especially when school is often so demotivating? Clearly, schools and camps have somewhat different objectives (and different formal accountability pressures, which matters) but they both have the potential to foster deep learning, and increasingly the areas of focus overlap. So what is it that schools can learn from the best camps about how to wildly motivate kids?
At Transcend we care deeply about growing and supporting a diverse community of educators who are fired up about accelerating innovation in the core design of school. To that end, in recent weeks Transcend's team has grown with key hires and a great new board member. We are thrilled to welcome Jenee, Joanna, Anna, Tyler, and Trevor.
