Teaching Resources

reDesigners find collaborating with schools, in classrooms and staff-rooms, to be incredibly energizing and creative work. This section of the Design Lab houses the prototypes and other resources we have developed to support the work of our clients. Many of these tools were developed in close collaboration with our clients, others we created to broaden and deepen our skills and understanding of complex teaching and learning issues.

Curriculum Planning

"With the rapid increase of online learning assets, the world of Curriculum Planning is changing rapidly, leading to exciting changes in teachers' and students' roles in the classroom. Great classrooms are now ones in which students have tremendous ownership over their learning, interacting and collaborating with one another on meaningful work. In these classrooms, teachers provide models, structure, and support. They are partners and guides. This collection of planning tools and templates is used by our clients as they plan lessons, units and modules that simultaneously scaffold learning for student success, while ensuring that the student remains at the center of the learning work".
