Innovation in schools provides new means to keep educational offerings up to date. Identifying unique and effective educational methods not currently utilized is an important first step in effective innovation. This project worked to initiate this process at Colegio Técnico Profesional de Santa Ana (CTPSA), a technical high school in San José, Costa Rica. We assisted in developing a Knowledge Management Center (KMC), a sustainable new building on campus that will provide space and resources to support student collaboration and connection beyond CTPSA. Through interviews, focus groups, and observations, we identified how collaborative teaching methods, flexible classroom design, and innovative resources outside of CTPSA can be implemented through the KMC to improve students’ education.
