student navigation TOOLKIT

In collaboration with Stanford University’s d.school, we have thoughtfully designed a 15-piece toolkit to equip students with the skills, knowledge and confidence to become purposeful navigators. The toolkit is composed of a set of beautifully designed paper materials printed on large format, recycled Kraft paper in partnership with our green certified printer. 

 

WAYFINDER JOURNEY TRACK

Our 15 activities are arranged in a sequence called the Wayfinder Journey Track, that builds on itself as it moves through the phases of Self-Awareness, World-Awareness, and Empowered Action using a wayfinding metaphor.

SELF-AWARENESS // UNDERSTANDING MY ISLAND

WORLD-AWARENESS // PREPARING FOR THE JOURNEY

Five exercises designed to help students turn their attention to the world outside of themselves and start thinking about how they could fit into the larger landscape. Topics covered include: understanding the landscape of our lives, building community, looking at the world's needs, developing empathy and exploring purpose.

EMPOWERED ACTION // NAVIGATING THE JOURNEY

Five exercises to empower students to think about how they can put what they have learned into practice and embark on meaningful projects. Topics covered include: understanding your "shoulds", leaning into fear, exploring your "why", navigating challenges, trying new things.

 

10 WAYFINDER Traits

Within this framework, our toolkit also supports students in developing 10 Wayfinder Traits central to becoming a successful and fulfilled wayfinder. Each piece of the toolkit explores a different trait using practices from a variety of wayfinding traditions as metaphors. These aspirational characteristics take time to develop, and we provide ways for students to observe their progress throughout the year.
