Tired of the empty hallways at school? Teachers at C:\DAGS taken the Hallway Hieroglyphics to soaring heights by connecting the project with a range of subjects from Geography to Debate.

The Hallway Hieroglyphics projects puts students at the center of transforming the once-empty walls on campus using a couple simple tools: imagination & masking tape. Teachers and students at C:\DAGS have taken this D3 Project of the Month and brought it to places that we could not have imagined. Hallway Hieroglyphs adorn the school walls with visualizations that range from Pro/Con debates on various classroom-related themes to interpretations of social justice themes.

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.
