A self-proclaimed deeper learning education nerd, Louie Montoya joined the d.school in 2018 to work with educators on learning and implementing design in the classroom. Today he leads the Deeper Learning Puzzle Bus, a K12 lab mobile experiment designed to look at how “escape rooms” can change the way educators think about measurement and assessment, as well as bring more delight into the classroom. A first- generation Mexican American raised across the western hemisphere, Louie developed an interest in other cultures that anchors his work on behalf of equitable practices in the design process. As a designer at the Business Innovation Factory in Rhode Island, Louie co-designed and ran the Teachers for Equity Fellowship that worked with educators to address issues of racial inequity in their schools and classrooms.
