Welcome to IDEAS: Inventive Designs for Education & the ArtS!
IDEAS is home to a philosophy supporting exceptional learning experiences for:
- Young children;
- Elementary learners;
- Communities; and
- Mature adults.
We develop imaginative ideas for educational change, committed to enriching lives and learning from birth through mature adulthood by:
- Surrounding individuals with extraordinary experiences;
- Tapping the power of the arts;
- Collaborating for change in education;
- Putting people at the center of decision making;
- Using developmentally sound evidence- and best-practices;
- Developing materials and activities that engage minds and bodies; and
- Modeling the democratic and equitable world we hope to live in.
