Designing for hope, wonder + joy.
Blue Dot Education (BDE) is an educational design and consulting company that aims to uplift communities and steward the earth’s ecosystems sustainably for future generations. BDE uses experiential learning as its primary mechanism for achieving these twin goals.
Our human-centered work focuses on designing and providing excellent experiences in the vision of creating a better and more equitable space for all learners.
We partner with schools, districts, and edu organizations to design, implement, and coach for Deeper Learning (DL) in their learning communities. Workshops and professional learning plans are aligned to the cognitive, interpersonal, and intra-personal domains of DL.
School Retool is a professional development fellowship that helps educational leaders like you redesign school culture using small, scrappy experiments built on research-based practices that lead to Deeper Learning.
Consulting + Design
Drawing on decades of experience, BDE offers comprehensive support for students, teachers, schools, and professional organizations.
Our services provide professional learning, student-facing programming, or corporate design support.
"The classroom Blue Dot Educators teach in is not one of textbooks or rows of desks or grades. It is far beyond that. Its classroom is the world and the learning comes from experiencing that world and becoming comfortable in that world. What results is a student who begins to think for themselves and sees life in a broader perspective, more than any classroom can provide."

"The Blue Dot team is full of the most insightful and learner-centered individuals I've ever met. The projects they have co-created with students and other educators stand out among the hundreds I have seen to date as ones that meet young people where they are, and take them far beyond where any one learner could go on their own. They are willing to push the boundaries when needed and can design the hell out of a grounded and rich learning experience or environment."
