The Shadow a Student Challenge is a crash course in empathy that starts with seeing school through a student's eyes. It helps school leaders find meaningful opportunities to improve the experience for students, and take insight-driven action to create change at their schools.
Devon Young began her career in education as an AmeriCorps VISTA, working at a non-profit that matches low-income middle school students in workplace-based apprenticeships. It was during this experience that Devon was able to see the power of inspiring students through hands-on, experiential learning, and realized the need to engage with educators to catalyze change in schools. At the d.school Devon has worked on the Project Fellowship team and the K12 Lab Network, and today works as the Program Manager and Learning Experience Designer for the K12 Lab Network. From leading the international Shadow a Student Challenge to delivering innovative professional development to educators through Discover Design Thinking workshops, Devon feels lucky to work with the K12 Lab Network where every day she is surrounded by educators striving to improve the world around them for their students.
“The CUE BOLD Symposium will take teachers, administrators, and district leaders on a deep dive into the world of blended and online lesson design.This event will challenge all educators to meet and lead their students in the 21st century with a focus on the symbiotic relationship of learning environment design, digital learning systems, and rethinking traditional lesson design as the essential components to launching a personalized 1:1 learning environment.”
