NewSchool utilizes proven innovation strategies to transform education.
Innovation requires new ways of thinking, yet people often use the same tired processes. NewSchool leverages innovation from other sectors and teaches Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Business Model Canvas, and Scenario Planning to help educators create new offerings and innovate antiquated systems. Our work supports public K-12, Higher Education, charters, private, edtech, and other ed startups. NewSchool is able to customize innovative work to the needs of clients. If you are building something new or trying to reimagine education in any way, NewSchool can help you figure it out.
