SAN DIEGO, CA -- Congratulations to Poway Unified School District’s Design39Campus for winning the Classroom of the Future Foundation's 2015 Innovate Award!
The award recognized the Design39 Campus, the district’s newest school, designed with the learner in mind. Students have a voice and choice in what they are learning. Instead of teachers, they have Learning Experience Designers (LEDs) who work collaboratively with each other and their students in flexible spaces. Educators from all over the country have been visiting the K-8 school, to see the innovative approach in person.
The award was presented to the district at a ceremony on May 20. It was the Foundation's 12th annual awards ceremony dinner, honoring all winners of the 2015 Innovation in Education Awards. The Poway Unified School District will receive a $5,000 cash award sponsored by EDmin.
