COMPASS EDUCATION IS BUILT BY EDUCATORS FOR EDUCATORS
We are a committed group of like minded educators who believe that our work has the potential to inspire lives and make the world a better place.
We know that great teaching and learning benefits everyone and we strive to be leaders in the introduction of systems thinking as a foundation for a sustainable future in our schools and in our world.
The Compass community is ready to welcome you.
Our tools build confidence and thinking routines which enable students critically analyze their community and world around them, as well as have a shared language to communicate their ideas to others. These routines can be integrated right into your lessons.
Students learn processes for understanding natural and human systems through authentic inquiry and practice articulating their interconnections. They can be used to dig deep into a subject or highlight interdisciplinary learning.
The tools help students reflect on their place in the world, build empathy with other people and perspectives, and evaluate their opportunities to be change agents and take action.
The tools are meant to be applied to address real world examples, challenges and situations which encourages problem solving and deeply contextualized learning opportunities.
