NAVIGATION NORTH HAS GRASS CLASS ROOTS

Navigation North began as a team of educators and educational resource developers working to re-imagine and re-design:

  • How teachers are supported in their practice
  • How students learn in and out of class
  • How education systems can best support innovation

While much of our work involves implementing systems, resources, and communities of practice on statewide and national levels, we still regularly work directly in schools and classrooms to continuously assess and calibrate our thinking and design with site leaders, teachers, and learners.

FEATURED PROJECT:

SMITHSONIAN LEARNING LAB

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources residing in the public domain or released under an intellectuåçal property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.

After a year of planning and design headed up by the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access (SCLDA) with technical design and development led by Navigation North, the Smithsonian Learning Lab was launched.
