The Future of k-12 content is here.

See how we’re pushing back on standards, and building a foundation for multicultural, interdisciplinary, concept-based learning.


Do you ever wonder…

What if we designed our education system to prepare young people with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in this complex, rapidly changing, crisis-laden world?

What if we broke away from standards, and re-organized learning around cross-disciplinary competencies and concepts that reflect the way the brain actually works?

What if we offered academic content to our students that actually reflects and affirms their identities, experiences, and interests?

It’s time to put learners back at the center of learning.

That’s why we’re Reimagining the K-12 Content Map

The 2021 Design Studio

In the summer of 2021, we brought together one hundred K-12 content experts for a collaborative design studio aimed at beginning to redefine learning for young people in K-12 education. Learn more about the event and the people who made it all possible.
