ChangeMaker Academy Design Jam

adminUser Research0 Comments

Last night we took over Tech Liminal in downtown Oakland to co-design some crazy models for high school with a fantastic group of parents, teachers and community members. Here are some snapshots and soundbites I picked up throughout the night (watch for more insights in an upcoming post!):

“We need to move away from core academics in the traditional manner…if it’s not applicable, it doesn’t matter.” – Erica, Mom

“I feel like high school is just preparation for a college education. There needs to be more career guidance.” – Justin

“A lot of times as adults we frown upon alternative education when a lot of times it’s a million times better.”

“Experience is just as valuable as school.”
