The AIGA Austin Changemaker Series unites teams of creative professionals with social change organizations to use design thinking, sustainable frameworks, and creative tools to help advance their mission. The cause for the 2019 Changemaker Series is maternal health. According to the World Health Organization, more than 135 million women give birth each year. Twenty million of those women will experience pregnancy-related illness after childbirth. In 2012, almost 40 percent of Texas women died while pregnant or within a year of giving birth. Black mothers are 3-4 more times likely to die from pregnancy-related complications.
Black Mamas Community Collective (BMCC) is one of the 2019 Changemaker Series organizations, and their mission is to improve maternal health access and outcomes of African-American mothers.

Child - Teachers can see content scores for the class, student groups, and the individual student. Parents are only able to see scores for their children.
Subjects - Both parents and teachers can see scores across various subjects.
Missions - Teachers and parents can assign missions and view scores on the disruptED platform based on the subject matter.
Stars / Streaks - disruptED engages students through gamification methods, such as stars and streaks (frequency of completed missions), where students are incentivized for completion of missions or assignments. Teachers, parents, and students can view the number of stars and activity streaks of each child, and for teachers, this includes student groups and the whole class.
Metrics - At this plane, only Teachers and school admin would view scores and percentages of students, student groups, and whole class across performance indicators of mastery, satisfactory, or below satisfactory.
AR / VR / ER - School admin and teachers would be able to segregate scores across different modes: augmented reality, virtual reality, and e-reader; to see where students or classes are experiencing growth or struggling. When explaining this to disruptED stakeholders and the design team, it would be important to understand if the content area or the various modes is contributing positively or negatively to student progress.
TEKS / Common Core - Teachers and school admin view student academic progress through TEKS/Common Core, state standards for K-12 curriculum and standardized testing. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is adopted by many states in the U.S., whereas Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS are the state standards for Texas public schools.
