Designing for Learning - Digital Promise

Designing for Learning

Welcome Edcamp organizers and participants! Digital Promise, and Transcend are excited to offer a new resource for the Edcamp community!

Educators who attend an Edcamp are eligible to receive Transcend’s Designing for Learning Cards, either by attending an in-person Edcamp where organizers distribute them or by mail after attending a virtual Edcamp. You can submit a request to have a card deck mailed to you directly or download a digital version. The 16-card deck aims to inspire teachers and school leaders to design effective learning environments and experiences for students, based on insights from neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, and education.

We hope you are as excited about these cards as we are and take the opportunity to integrate them into your teaching practice. The insights from these cards can be used to improve your students’ learning experience, whether you are in person, online, or using a hybrid model.

To get started, try one of the design activities from the booklet found inside the card deck, or use our new “Designing Your Online or Hybrid Learning Environment” activity.

On the page below, you’ll find information about earning Digital Promise micro-credentials aligned to the Designing for Learning cards. We hope you take advantage of furthering your professional learning!
