We were thrilled to have over 1,300 principals join the first national Shadow A Student Challenge. They cleared their calendars, silenced walkie-talkies, threw on sneakers, and immersed themselves in student life for a day.
The Shadow a Student site is now available for educators to continue to engage in this great practice on your own schedule. All the tools are evergreen and available for on-going use. Join the community of educators committed to rethinking the student experience-starting by walking in the shoes of a student. See you at the bus stop.
A tutorial for turning insights into actions
This free 15-minute online tutorial will help you build on your insights from shadowing a student and guide you to a small, quick experiment or “hack” to improve the student experience in your school.
The goal isn’t to get it perfect—it’s to learn, fast.
The way to deepen and expand your Shadow A Student experience
School Retool is a 6-month professional development fellowship that helps school leaders like you redesign your school culture using small, scrappy experiments called “hacks.” Hacks may start small, but they're built on research-based practices that lead to Deeper Learning, and can create the kind of big change you aspire to—namely, preparing your students for life in the real world.
Applications are live for Fall 2016 cohorts in six locations across the country.Apply Here
