Our Work in Design Development
Students Design For Education (SD4E) is a groundbreaking initiative to create a school designed by high school students. SD4E is driven by a team of students hungry for transformation, supported by community members and educators passionate about student success, and powered by BIF’s extensive experience in human-centered design.
Through the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and building on the research of Feedback for Teachers, BIF prototyped and tested TD4Ed, an online platform that teaches design thinking and enables teachers to innovate in the classroom, school, and district.
The Student Experience Lab partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to engage teachers in creating and leading local communities of practice focused on issues of equity and closing opportunity and achievement gaps.
