Who is KCI?

The Krause Center for Innovation is a nonprofit professional learning organization that partners with individual educators, school districts, county offices, and strategic partners to change the way educators learn. We develop responsive state certificate programs and workshops in educational technology, STEAM education, and online / blended learning. Our grant-funded Makerspace, located in Los Altos Hills on the campus of Foothill College, showcases the flexible and creative mindset of KCI’s approach to professional learning.

Student Design Thinking and Equity Projects

The Equity Deconstructed STEAM research class was launched for the 2021-2022 school year by seven Monta Vista High School educators in Fremont Union High School District. Students chose their own research topic and created their project using the Stanford d School’s Design Thinking Process, which includes conducting empathy interviews with community members and peers.

Let’s get started

I was looking for some new tools to inspire my teaching and to engage my students, and the MERIT program was it! What a wonderful way to spend part of my summer. No PD, no workshops, and no conferences - before or since - have come close to the quality of MERIT!
