We design and develop books, whitepapers, research reports, games, podcasts, media, and other experimental products. Most come from the work of a current or past research and development lab. While they are not the core of what we do, sometimes we play with other simple products to celebrate our mission, vision, and values…like the t-shirts at the bottom of this page.

Product: Book – Breathe: A Vision and Framework for Human-Centered Learning Environments
Description: Much of the modern education system is built upon values like standardization, efficiency, mass production, quantification, mechanization, and technology. These priorities play an important role in modern education and society, yet none are capable of drawing learners into meaning-rich, authentic, engaging, and transformational learning experiences. For that, we must turn to the best of ancient knowledge and modern research. In this book, Dr. Bernard Bull offers a vision and framework for human-centered learning environments that prioritize deeply human phenomena like adventure, agency, compassion, connectedness, experimentation, play, mastery, growth, meaning, purpose, wonder, and mystery.
