People learn in different ways.

It's time we design for it.

Design with Intent

We Produce High-Quality Learning

Whether you’re a business leader, educational instructor, or student, the design of your learning environment matters. In fact, the design of the environment profoundly shapes how the user interacts and engages with it.

Our mission is to ensure that every child, learner, consumer and user has access to an inclusive and equitable learning environment because engaging in high-quality learning experiences is a fundamental human right, and not a privilege.

Universal Design for Learning

Learning Key supports a wide range of organizations from business, schools, districts, and other non and for-profit organizations. We support individuals and organizations by offering various tools, resources, coaching, consulting and professional learning opportunities.

Our work is inspired by a variety of educational approaches including Universal Design for Learning, Visible Thinking, and Teaching for Understanding. We create flexible learning environments so all learners can excel and achieve more than they think they could ever achieve.

The Jagged Profile

Too often we assess learners based on a statistical average. When we do this, we miss out on the potential and talent of those around us. The Jagged Profile, a concept developed by Todd Rose, helps unpack the power of individuality. It shows us the need to design environments that are flexible and can support all those who interact in it. When we design for learners in the margins, we can unleash the power and potential of all people.
