Designing Advisory Systems

When communities are thriving, there is a universal feeling of belonging. Each individual community member feels free to express their authentic selves and pursue their unique interests and passions. In turn, this freedom of expression adds fuel to the fire of community sustainability and growth.

What if you had the ability to create a thriving community with your young learners? What new possibilities might show up? The team at Springpoint works with learning environments to make community and culture a priority in transformational design. In their work, they have discovered high-impact results when learners are connected to their learning, their future, the adults around them, their community, and their peers. In Springpoint’s latest report, Designing Advisory Systems, they show five unique ways advisories can ensure such connections are cultivated. Within each profile, discover ideas that match the needs and interests of your young learners and how you too can create an inclusive and inviting sense of community in your learner-centered environment.
