Design Council, designmyschool.net, launches full beta version

Having worked on this for nearly a year now it was a delight to be able to launch the website at the recent Design Council conference in Birmingham, ‘From the inside looking out’.

The site is an innovative online metric – a questionnaire for children to help them rate various aspects of their school environment and for teachers and school managers to be able to use the results to inform their decision making processes. It is beyond anything else a tool to help open the dialogue between children and their schools about a range of issues.

It may not be quite perfect, yet. It is, after all a beta version…

At one time you could have checked it here

http://www.designmyschool.net or here http://www.designmyschool.com

but it is currently off line pending review and possible re-build.

There is still stuff to do, and ways to improve it, but we are excited about the early feedback from schools…

Check out Jonathan’s blog on this item too – Jonathan worked on a lot of the coding!

Let me know what you think…

    Hi Anna, thanks for the interest. Sadly, the site is currently offline, although wheels are turning (slowly) to try to get it back up and running in a new version.

    Can I ask if you are involved in schools or the design process?
