Empowering the next generation

of Innovators

Our credo is to “care for those who care.” We are devoted to nurturing the passion and dedication of early childhood educators, acknowledging their pivotal role in shaping the future.  By fostering workforce development, offering training, and amplifying their contributions through showcasing their innovative work, we aim to enrich the educational landscape for our youngest learners.

The primary purpose of this collaborative inquiry is to best understand the requirements and interests of early childhood educators to develop teacher training materials that can be used by others to apply the principles of Maker-centered Learning. Structured by the Agency by Design at Harvard University, this collaborative inquiry is grounded in the principles of design-based research wherein the expertise of researchers and practitioners are combined to develop dynamic interventions that result in “usable knowledge” that is specific to a particular context.
