We know more today about how students learn than we have at any other time in the history of formal education. While many traditional foundations remain effective, many new methods to learning are emerging. As “stewards of our students’ intellectual curiosity,” we commit ourselves to exploring engaging opportunities for our students to embrace their “passion for discovery.”  The IDEA program at St. Mark’s is a collection of student experiences throughout Middle School that provide students with an opportunity to engage in learning with a bias to action and begin to develop skills they will need to be successful and satisfied learners for years to come. We launched this program this fall and it is the result of 3 years of program evolution. It is based on the concepts of knowledge creation and design thinking.  In this session, we offer a glimpse into how we developed this program and provide guidance to help others get started in developing their own version at their school.   There are three perspectives from which we will guide the session: administration, teacher, and marketing/communications.
