bringing human-centered design to education, government, healthcare — the sectors that need it most — requires a few important culture shifts:
1. We need to bust out of siloed design practices.
2. We need to develop ever-broader capacities, taking an interdisciplinary, deeply collaborative approach.
We turn our own questions on ourselves: What if we could help design education that readies today’s kids for the technologically enhanced (and challenged) environment they’ll grow up into? While we’re at it, what if we could then start addressing the very policy that shapes those educational institutions? That kind of moonshot systems thinking requires both agility and scale — it requires networked organizations and creative collectives. It requires designers who never stand still.
when individuals with their own aspirations and talents come together to build upon each other’s work and drive toward a greater goal, we can gain traction on much bigger challenges — and find new ways forward.
