The Innovation Project (TIP)

Sparking Dialogue and Designs to Develop Optimal K-12 Learning Environments

The pandemic has uncovered many inequitable flaws in our nation’s schools. The purpose of The Innovation Project (TIP) is to foster an academic discussion about the current educational climate and explore flexible and more optimal K-12 educational learning environments.

Our mission is to explore innovative approaches to restructuring/ remodeling K-12 schools that are equitable, flexible to meet the potential within each child.

 You cannot predict the future, but you can create it.”

Stacy's Bio

Stacy is a current student in the Curriculum Development and Instructional Design program at the University at Albany. She is also an eLearning Instructional Design Manager at the CUNY Research Foundation, where she leads a team of talented instructional designers building and implementing online training programs for New York state employees. She also has experience designing, implementing, and managing K-12 and workforce educational programs in web and software development for children and adults.

She earned a B.A. in English Literature from Humboldt State University in 2004, and subsequently meandered into the tech sector, where she was ultimately able to earn a salary writing and teaching as the head of the education team for a healthcare IT start-up company in Vermont. She has taught a wide variety of subjects, including academic writing, general biology, physical anthropology, web and software development, and digital literacy, and if there’s one thing she has witnessed over and over again, it’s that making our students successful depends more on our support for their learning and development than it does on our accumulation of background knowledge or expertise.
