From Ideas to Action

This week at C:/Dags saw continued momentum of the D3 project of the month–”Hallway Hieroglyphics.”  Mr. Gomez quickly took the premise of the project and incorporated it into the social justice unit of his Geography class.  After a class discussion about what it means to have “wealth”, students brainstormed various forms of alternative community capital such as family, social, and linguistic assets. Depicting these concepts visually is the basis of continued hieroglyphics within the C:/Dags hallways.  Other teachers are beginning to have their own ideas for Hieroglyphics tied to activities and curriculum.  We look forward to seeing the hallways continue fill up with life and color!

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
