Every learner is a creator. This conviction, combined with the mindsets, skill sets and tool sets of “Agile”, can unleash the creative genius of teachers and students in surprising new ways. Designed InGenuity is a learning framework for the creative mind – where small experiments spark fast, iterative learning cycles and integrate students’ personal interests into the curriculum.
It's a practice that allows school leaders, their teachers and support staff to experience, once again, the original joy of curiosity-led learning, and inspire wonder and deeper learning for our students. Each DIG is typically a five-day sprint. It begins with a shared understanding of the subject under exploration – a "common ground" – and the assignment of individual scramblers, that create "plots" of discovery for each learner.
From there, the learners follow their curiosity – we call it "Rabbit Hole Research" – to learn about the topics under investigation, but also about themselves as they integrate their personal interests. At the completion of the program, participants will have the skills and knowledge to:
- inspire their students through curiosity-led learning cycles
- integrate students’ personal interests into the curriculum.
