Our story


reDesignED uses research-based design and design-based research (DBR) to advance evidence-based teaching and learning with technology. We work with our partners to create a more resilient, equitable future of learning and to prepare learners to thrive in a world of rapid change.


Our vision is a model of education in which learning is more authentic, more culturally-responsive, more evidence-based, more personalized, more inclusive, more holistic, and more competency-based. This vision is achievable today through the thoughtful application of learning technologies.


We work to arrive at equitable and sustainable solutions. Consequently,

  1. we design with people not for people. Our approach is collaborative, iterative, and respects local knowledge
  2. we center the voices of those who are directly impacted by the outcomes of the design process
  3. we aim for sustainable, community led, and-controlled outcomes
  4. our design interventions are grounded in learning sciences research
  5. we share both research and design knowledge with the communities we serve
  6. before seeking new design solutions, we look for what is already working at the community level
