SAN JOSE, CA - Santa Clara County schools are encouraged to participate in "Shadow a Student Challenge" which runs from February 26-April 12.
This event allows school leaders to follow an English learner for a full day, and immerse themselves in the student's experience, see the challenges, and brainstorm opportunities for a more welcoming and inclusive school environment.
School leaders will receive step-by-step instructions, materials to support their learning, and tools for more in-depth learning. The challenge is designed to help educators gain a valuable new perspective and build empathy, which is the root of human-centered design and key to the innovation process.
The challenge is open to all school leaders - at any school, anywhere in the world.
