Hawken School

MV Experts consulted with administration and teachers from the Hawken School in Cleveland, Ohio to implement high-quality Project-based Learning (PBL). MV Consultants led by Nicole Martin, Executive Director of Learning and Innovation, facilitated a group session comparing and contrasting project-based learning with design thinking so that teacher leaders could dig deeply into the nuanced depths of these inquiry-based approaches.

In addition, they guided participants around the school to develop observation and curiosity journals that could seed ideas for projects and design-thinking challenges. Hawken teachers built PBL unit plans based on these emerging brainstorms and provocations.


During the past decade, we have had the opportunity to serve and partner with hundreds of schools and organizations throughout the United States and across the globe.
