Developed by Team Exponent, Exponential Education is an open source education framework and curriculum for learning, solving, and building through 10x thinking and projects. The curriculum centers on Exponential Sprints, which encourage children to realize and build 10x solutions to some of humanity’s most difficult challenges. By focusing on uncovering children’s passions and interests, and helping them to acquire the skills to solve challenging problems through 10x thinking, Exponential Sprints aid adults in shifting away from asking children, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” to “What problem do you want to solve, and what do you want to build now?” Any school program can implement Exponential Education. The curriculum is flexible and can be applied to a full-time school year, a single class, an after-school program, or even a weekend or conference experience.
The Shadow a Student Challenge is an engaging, illuminating, and supportive journey where school leaders come together to empathize with their students and take new kinds of action at their school. The challenge is an initiative of IDEO’s SchoolRetool, a professional development fellowship that helps school leaders redesign their school cultures using the small, scrappy experiments called “hacks” introduced in the Shadow a Student Challenge.
