The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. In the Spring of 2014 The Aspen Institute embarked on a project to assist schools across the country as they transitioned to the Common Core State Standards.
Relish studio was approached by the Aspen Institute to provide support and create a the transition to Common Core Standards. Because schools have so many different needs, and education requirements, and different implementation programs, Aspen Institute needed a friendly easy to use interface and program that would be able to be quickly and easily implemented at any school or district around the nation.
To help teachers and administrators navigate this fundamental shift, Relish explored a user-friendly technology solution that would empower schools to manage their own transitions in a smart, systematic way. The interface that was created was simplified to include super friendly icons and graphics and clearly laid out details. There were clear expectations for teachers and the tool would create easy to understand reports and action items for schools and teachers to assist them in adhering to Common Core State Standards.
