ENGAGE STUDENTS - EMPOWER TEACHERS - TRANSFORM SCHOOLS

Lauren Marold - Maker Mindsets, Design Thinking, Space Redesign, Campus Professional Learning

I have worked in PK-12 Independent School education for the past eleven years in Dallas, TX. I currently have the pleasure of serving the Greenhill School Preschool, Lower School, and Upper School where my work is focused in Educational Technology. I have had the opportunity to work with students and teachers from all grade levels in 1:1 iPad/laptop environments, tech rich classrooms, and Makerspaces.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas State University, a Master of Liberal Studies from Southern Methodist University and recently completed a Master of Educational Technology Leadership through George Washington University. I also had the honor of participating in the 2017-2018 Early Career and Aspiring Technology Director’s Institute through ATLIS. Following my training with the Stanford d.school K12 Lab, I have spent a great deal of time helping schools reinvent the way they identify problems within their institutions and design towards change.

My greatest passion is to help schools develop their teachers into eager learners through the creation of Collaborative Learning Communities (CLCs), redesign space to reinvent the way it might support their learners, and implement design thinking models to support their school’s future.

Change can be hard, change can take time, but when done well and through teacher leadership, great change can be made.

I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you as your school builds for the future.

As a Lausanne Learning Consultant, Lauren exemplifies the LL Five Consulting Characteristics:

  1. Student-Centered Character: LL Consultants always keep each student at the center of the conversation in imagining what “could be” from “what is”
  2. Sustaining Character: LL Consultants are focused on working with the school to implement practices that can be sustained over the long term to support the school’s mission
  3. Imaginative Character: LL Consultants are expert and thus can imagine different answers as you interrogate the key question or questions that you are being asked
  4. Independent Character: LL Consultants ensure that their clients become independent of them over time, not co-dependent
  5. Fearless Character: LL Consultants won’t tell their clients what they want to hear but what, in their professional opinion, should be said
