Who We Are

For almost ten years, we have partnered with communities, government, schools, universities and private industry to develop and deliver learning systems, facilitation and technology platforms for organizational building, knowledge creation and collaboration.

oneLouder has been around since 2011 and seeks to operate at the conceptual hinge point between contemporary, inclusive and evidence-driven curriculum, facilitation & pedagogy, and the innovative, technically complex landscape enabled by networked devices. oneLouder emphasizes a design approach that fosters creativity and agency on the part of the learner, service and best practice from the perspective of technology design, and harmony and integration in regard to our partnerships with our clients, aimed at a positive and sustainable collective impact on both educator and learner.

What We Do

We work with clients to create effective and impactful learning systems and knowledge collaboration platforms.

We aim to deliver platforms and innovative facilitation approaches built upon the best possible evidence. From critical pedagogy to UDL to participatory design, we work to find harmony between people and technology, delivering systems designed at their core to enhance and enable Communities of Practice.

Dashi Community/Nonprofit Platform

Dashi is our flagship Nonprofit and CoP (Community of Practice) Platform, designed around an extensive review of organizational technical capacities, sectoral priorities and organizational learning needs at community and nonprofit organizations. Dashi helps to bring your strategic planning in line with your project planning, knowledge management, project reporting, strategic communications, and strategic finanacial frameworks and helps to make all of your community data available to stakeholders via custom dashboards.

Curriculum/Program Design

From K-12 to community-centric adult education in both official languages, our consultants have decades of experience designing around the most critical and contemporary pedagogical constructs, incorporating participatory design, skills and competencies, and inquiry based learning in the design of our programs and solutions.
We have expertise in educational framework and curriculum alignment, facilitated professional development experiences, and deployment of innovative technical solutions to empower communities of practice.

EoViz Data and Science Platform

Interaction with rich data sources from a variety of media enables authentic engagement with a community’s knowledge through multiple ways of knowing. We design custom dashboards and other data visualization tools to meet your community's data needs, enabling inquiry, knowledge synthesis, and action.
EoViz is our Data and Science Collaboration Platform. It's been designed over two decades of thinking about how best to bring people, data, research assets, collaborative partnerships and the Internet of Things (IoT) together using an online platform for communities of practice engaged in shared scientific inquiry.

Facilitated Popular Education and Strategic Planning

Informed by several decades of progressive experience and education in K-12 pedagogy and curriculum, and in post-secondary, adult and community education sectors, our consultants apply best practices in the design of learning experiences and facilitated group work, tailored to meet your community of practice’s professional development and strategic planning needs. We design facilitated custom workshops to build capacity, support collaboration and transform practice, including, but certainly not limited to: STEM, SOAR-based strategic planning, climate change and sustainability adaptation education, inquiry-based learning using digital tools, and citizen science. Contact us to discuss your idea.

Networking and Collaboration

Understanding where best to put your collaboration efforts can help your team avoid wasted energy and poorly spent social capital. Our custom platforms and our flagship products, Dashi and EoViz, are designed to empower your staff and communities to work more closely and effectively, and have more comprehensible impacts, by leveraging evidence-driven approaches to online collaboration, shared creativity and network/digital asset mapping. Users can find new and unique ways in which their data are interwoven and connected with their own organizational story - often better leveraging existing knowledge systems and larger strategic narratives.

Competency Frameworks

As learners increasingly look to integrate their education efforts into their professional and personal presence online, Frameworks for Qualification and Competency Frameworks enable us to share a common language, clarifying goal setting, strengthening asset and needs analysis, and better defining educational objectives, development programming and training needs.
At oneLouder, we have significant experience working to build programs, systems and platforms that play well with others, routinely designing to various sets of standards and technical/guild/trade knowledge complinace guidelines as well as newly emerging, responsive and innovative competencies frameworks.
