Thank you, Ivon. Yes Dewey is a great inspiration to me. You’ll see his perspective on prioritizing the now of students’ experience, and the collective aims, woven in throughout my work. One of my biggest realizations was that schools are socializing students regardless of whether we are designing for it or not — and the effects on our society are huge — so we should probably be intentional about how students practice community and collaboration and democracy.
