About Kyle Wagner
[Co] Learning Experience Designer
WHO I AM
I am a seasoned [co] learning experience designer who empowers forward thinking schools to create more socially, emotionally and globally aware citizens through authentic project- based experiences.
WHAT I BELIEVE
I believe in the following guiding principles:
- Designing deep and meaningful learning experiences start with building a culture that allows educators the freedom and autonomy to take risks
- We are not islands. Learner-centered environments ‘stick’ when building a common vision w/ like minded practitioners.
- Learning should move beyond the confines of the school walls and into the community
- Change the pedagogy first before changing the practice
- Deep and meaningful learning is the merging of head, hand and heart

“Kyle’s trainings are by far the most engaging, relevant, tailored and helpful that I’ve ever been a part of. With Kyle’s approach to planning projects, our learning experiences are much more rigorous and easier to manage.“
When I became an educator 20 years ago, I had a clear vision for school. Schools would move beyond the limited confines of their walls to create dynamic learning experiences that engaged students in meaningful work, and brought their curriculum to life. Students wouldn’t just learn subjects, they would think and act like real scientists, architects, engineers, museum curators, and business owners; addressing and solving community problems by working directly beside professionals in the field. After working at and with some of the most innovative schools in the world, from High Tech High in San Diego, to leading ‘Futures Academy’ at the International School of Beijing, I realized that many edu-transformers share my vision. They too desire to transform student learning experiences and connect their students to work that matters.
But I also realized that these learner-centred practitioners face a great challenge. Many have incredibly large staffs to support, a packed curriculum to deliver, and a constant feeling of not having enough time for these kind of transformative learning experiences. And so, after leading innovative programs that worked around these parameters, I vowed to help leaders achieve similar milestones at their schools. I left the incredibly successful program I founded to work full time in helping these edu-leaders build the capacity for these learner-centered environments and experiences at their respective schools. I have now worked with over 20 schools in supporting the design of 500+ learning experiences.
