If you were able to see through their eyes, would it change how you teach or cause you to rethink certain guidelines or policies?

Join Jonathan Martin, who has shadowed students at dozens of schools, as he provides suggestions for how you can make the most of this eye-opening experience. In addition, he will explores why this is a valuable practice and shares what he and others have learned from their experiences. **February 29 through March 4 has been designated by School Retool and Stanford Design School as the week administrators everywhere are encouraged to commit to shadowing a student for a school-day.
