The Critical Design and Gaming School is part of the Schools for Community Action in South Los Angeles. The focus of D3 at C:\DAGS programming is building educator capacity around implementing social design-inspired projects with students.
NLI consultants work with teachers on integrating the D3 methodology into their instructional practice through 3 sequential contexts: the classroom, the school, and the community. Through both professional development sessions and one-on-one consulting, D3@C:\DAGS programming empowers educators to test and explore how design thinking leads to student learning experiences that foster real world applications and civic impact. One project example includes Hallway Hieroglyphics in which students apply subject matter content to transform empty physical spaces at the school using creative ideas and one simple tool, masking tape.
