Frugal Education
Action Cards

A practical tool for creating frugal education designs

Design education in a frugal way!

The Frugal Education Action Cards are an easy to use tool for rethinking education design in frugal and sustainable ways.
The cards are comprised of 27 frugal education considerations, organised by their associated aspects and overarching principles.
Each card is designed to act as a prompt to inspire your creativity when considering how to best apply it within your design. This will take some creative thinking on your part as you leverage the materials and resources at your disposal to craft innovative education design.


The cards are split into three separate decks; one for each guiding principle.


Each guiding principle is broken down into three key aspects of frugal education.


Each aspect is comprised of three considerations, each designed to spark your creativity!

The cards are free to share, print, and remix!
