A new white paper highlights GMRI's Vital Signs program as one of six innovative professional development initiatives that explores what it might mean to adopt a more participatory model for working with teachers.

Designing with Teachers was released by Henry Jenkins' and Erin Reilly's PLAY! group at the University of Southern California. The multimedia case study features materials produced by Vital Signs participants and explores the program's key professional development elements.

"Being invited to participate in this working group gave us the opportunity to reflect on the broader context of what we are accomplishing in Vital Signs," said Sarah Kirn, Vital Signs Program Manager. "It was thrilling to be involved in a conversation like this and find that our ideas and practices are resonating at the national level."
