Human-Centered Design: An Innovative Tool for Professional Learning in Family Engagement
Human-centered design is a powerful tool for promoting family engagement.
Human-centered design is a process used to create new products and services based on knowing and empathizing with people. This process can be a powerful tool for promoting family engagement because it:
- Creates a platform for raising up families’ voices and perspectives,
- Builds strong relationships and understanding between families and educators, and
- Leads to the development of more-effective family engagement practices, strategies, and programs.
In our work, we’ve utilized the process described in our guide to raise up families’ voices and co-design resources and services with them.
