Part of our mission with innovation is creating learning spaces that inspire, motivate, and support all DAIS students. We believe in promoting creativity with expansive access to writable surfaces, agile furniture for collaborative learning, and high levels of transparency within each learning space.
We’re incorporating these Principles of Agile Design in our school:
In 2019, DAIS also invested in new Design Labs based on guidance and support from the creators of Level 5. In the years leading up to launch, we conducted extensive research, consultation with ISS’s Chief Innovation Officer John Burns, and purposeful strategic planning with the newly recruited Design Program teachers and the administrators of DAIS.
In order to support the integration of technology into curriculum, instruction, and assessment, DAIS routinely evaluates and improves the technology infrastructure to meet educational needs.
As we look to the future needs of a growing, diversifying student body, DAIS faculty strive daily to develop rigorous, authentic learning experiences for our students. Our newly renovated classrooms, laboratories and learning centers serve to facilitate this important, ongoing mission for years to come.
