Design Tools for Innovators
DEVELOPING RESOURCES AND APPROACHES
I am skilled at finding creative solutions to social and institutional challenges. I also am adept at communicating complex ideas visually. I have developed new models of literacy and play which have informed the work of educators in the UK and internationally. Through innovative research methodologies and co-design practices I adopt approaches to research which value and integrate the diverse voices, views, needs and concerns of young people and educators. Please do get in touch if you would like me to help you tackle a new challenge or explore new ideas.
