About this organization






Leanlab Education is a nonprofit organization that specializes in codesign research between education technology companies and schools. We match parents, learners and educators with edtech developers to inform, develop, and evaluate the next generation of classroom tools. We study how well edtech tools work in real classroom environments, and connect promising edtech solutions with resources to support accelerating their impact.


Leanlab hosts ongoing community convening events for parents, students, educators and innovators interested in innovating to better public schools within the Kansas City, Missouri region. These events take the form of small focus groups, monthly meetups, and an annual listening tour with the goal of identifying community needs for innovation, and cultivating an innovation mindset within the regional community.
