Why we do events

At MVIFI, we are insatiably curious. As we explore, research and expand our own capabilities within our primary place of practice, we believe deeply in sharing and doing our part to build capacity in other practitioners. Above all else, by being intentional about blurring the lines between school and the real world, we are leading the way in transforming education and creating a destination for anyone seeking to design a better world.

School Reimagined

$250

Suggested Audience: Deans of Faculty, Department Heads, Curriculum Directors, Teachers

Description: As a school of inquiry, impact and innovation, The Mount Vernon School continues to reimagine what school is and does. Closing the gap between real life and school life, we have been on a transformational journey for a decade and can empathize with the opportunities and challenges you are navigating. On this expedition, you will join members of the Mount Vernon team for a half-day of deeper learning and connect with expert practitioners through one of three experiences:

Choose one of the following three experiences:

  • How do you make school life more reflective of real life? Experience how Mount Vernon looks at the whole child (PK-12), looking through the lens of real-world project work. Topics will include Design Thinking, Inquiry Based Learning; Inter/Multi/Transdisciplinary Learning, Innovative and Flexible Spaces, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and Assessment.
  • Maker, Design & Engineering - Want to take a deep dive specifically into Maker, Design and Engineering? Spend the morning with our MDE experts in residence and what it means to be a maker at Mount Vernon.
  • Virtual Reality - Have you heard about immersive and emerging technologies? Take a deep dive into Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality and how we use it here at Mount Vernon School.

Each participant will travel with an MV expert on a learning walk, receive instruction and guidance about respective School models, and debrief with faculty members during lunch.

As a school of inquiry, impact and innovation, transformation can be complex and difficult. Our new unique, innovative Upper School building pushes all limits of what school can look like. With flexible furniture, movable walls, high-tech Maker labs and transparent garage doors, we invite you to experience the collision of spatial strategies, collaborative culture, innovative products and 21st century learning. Participants will experience the new Upper School building as well as a focused Q&A session with Mount Vernon senior leaders to hear firsthand "the why and the what” behind what we do and take some initial steps towards your “how.” Want a sneak peek?
