The Headrush Learning team is in service to liberate learning from the confines of traditional thinking and foster self-empowered learners who are future-ready.
Headrush Learning was founded in 2017 as a convergence of its founders' 15+ years of experience starting up, working in, and supporting learner-centered schools.
That firsthand experience combined with the support of several learner-centered Minnesota schools helped launch the Headrush Learning Platform. Today Headrush serves some of the most inspiring learner-centered schools in the world. The team's work is guided by the following principles:
Meet learners where they are
Facilitate meaningful experiences for learners supported by mentors
Inspire, motivate & connect learners with learning opportunities
Express learning to the world
Founders Mike, Shane, and Jeff knew firsthand how limited the options were for truly learner-centered schools:
Traditional learning systems stifled the kind of model the three believed best for learning;
Home grown systems were easy to start, but hard to maintain;
More generic solutions put student agency far behind more teacher-directed activities.
The feedback, excitement, and validation of the first five customers has fueled growth that has allowed Headrush to grow the team and serve 10,000+ learners, across 3 continents.
Beyond serving many schools with the MNLCN, the Headrush team connects like-minded educators, curates best practice resources, and helps sponsor teacher-powered initiatives.
