Please join us in extending our congratulations and warm re-welcome to Rich Crandall!
We are pleased to announce that Rich, one of our 2007-2008 d.school fellows, has agreed to remain at the d.school in a director’s role, leading the K-12 Lab through at least Summer 2009. Rich started with Susie Wise and the K-12 Lab team in the Autumn of 2007, and has been guiding these efforts since the Spring of 2008. He’s been continuing the work of developing K-12 design thinking curriculum and has been spinning up teaching teams with the Nueva School, East Palo Alto Academy, the Henry Ford Learning Institute, and more.
Rich and the K-12 team have executed on numerous teacher workshops and student experiences, and are engaged in building long-term relationships and fund raising development as well. We’re looking forward to seeing what new heights this year brings. Rich is an extraordinary design thinker and leader, and and passionate proponent of great learning experiences for kids. And he brings to the d.school a sure knowledge of what a little fun can do to change your day, your mood and your life
