TASA Partners with engage2learn to Bring Innovation to More School Districts

11.08.2018 — TASA has announced a new partnership with engage2learn (e2L) to help bring e2L's new, more affordable Do-it-Yourself (DIY) solutions to school districts of all sizes and in every corner of the state.

e2L's Experience

Since 2011, e2L has assisted more than 200 districts — primarily in Texas — in designing culture and systems, modernizing teaching and learning through coaching teachers, leaders, and coaches, and growing future-proof learners who are life-ready. e2L's work has always been aligned to TASA's vision and beliefs about public education, as e2L's mission is to ensure that the neighborhood public school is the first choice for every family. e2L’s actionable processes have been a key for many Texas districts to make the New Vision for Public Education a reality. Districts that have partnered with e2L are attaining double-digit increases in student engagement and achievement.

New DIY Solutions

e2L is partnering with TASA to make these proven processes more readily available to districts at about half the cost through a do-it-yourself solution. With DIY, districts have the power to use these results-driven processes in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step process.

With e2L’s DIYs, districts have the capability to develop:
  • a Strategic Design framework
  • a Campus Strategic Design
  • a Learning Innovation Framework (LIFe)
  • a Learner Profile
  • an Educator Profile
  • a Leader Profile
  • a set of Culture Tenets
  • Community-Based Accountability
Each DIY solution is based on design thinking and the backward-design methodology honed during the last seven years by e2L's team of Texas educators. The DIY platform walks users through the process from beginning to end with an app that contains all the templates for their work, an online course with facilitation guides, and guidelines to help develop district plans. Several DIY solutions include in-person trainer-of-trainers sessions.
