These experiences feature a community partner to support authenticity, built-in scaffolding for you to make learning visible, and exhibitions of learning to provide purpose and audience for your students.

School Playbook Workshops: Designing for Innovation
Bring your School Action Team to these workshops and join others as we use the school playbook design thinking processes and tools to lead our schools. Our design thinking process features four phases: Discover insights and user needs; Define opportunities to focus on; Develop and test possible solutions; and Document and share stories.
Rocky View Future Schools are innovative prototype schools that change the way kids learn. By designing authentic learning experiences for students to demonstrate their understanding through place based experiences, we believe students will be more engaged, successful and audacious in life.
