A university lab + design collaboratory
The Daplab is a collective of learning scientists and co-designers who partner with community members and organizations. Our work is backed both by academic and practical knowledge and directed towards the most pressing needs of community partners.
what we do
Eyes on the sky, feet on the ground (and a handful of sticky notes).
Design is our language
We use design-based methods to co-create technology, platforms,
curricula, social programs, and strategic initiatives with students,
teachers, families, and districts, as well as private and governmental
Learning is our target
We produce knowledge and tools that imagine, re-design and facilitate how children and adults learn.
Partnerships are our way
We have expertise in facilitating community partnerships, co-creating with communities, and translating future imaginations into strategic plans for implementation and continuous improvement.
Equity is our core.
We build from the histories and assets of our community partners. We are attuned to creating culturally sustaining solutions that come from the community.
