These areas of impact are weaved throughout the Friday Institute’s work and show the ways we’re working toward accomplishing our mission.
In 2020, the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation engaged in a comprehensive, strategic re-visioning process that focused our work on three key areas of impact:
- Cultivating equity in education through equity-mindedness
- Amplifying teaching and learning through technology
- Creating capacity for innovation across education systems
For each impact area, our strategies remain consistent. We research, design or grow effective teaching practices that are evidence-based; we evaluate innovations and programs to ensure access to and efficacy of practice; we provide leadership in the educational ecosystem as a trusted advisor to inform standards, practices and policy; and we create capacity to scale innovative practices through convenings and other professional development opportunities.
