The development of K2As are based on a process developed by Stanford d.school. Students are led through a seven-step process to design action plans on an issue that they selected.
The Collaboratory allows students to share their work and collaborate virtually with peers. Students can also receive ongoing feedback from their teachers as they design their K2A.
Project allies are a group of experienced professionals who have expertise in specific topics or project design and development. At different stages of the design, students connect virtually to Project Allies for support and advice about their project.
