What We Believe

Before we can teach and inspire the next generation of K12 students, we need to train and empower our teachers on the use of technology-driven resources (content, apps, software, tools, and projects). Our educators need to embrace technology-driven resources as assets to their existing curriculum and teaching methodologies.

We know that adding educational technology into today's classrooms transform the way students learn and succeed in today's competitive global economy and workforce. Simply put, embracing educational technology opens the door to:  

  • Train 21st Century educators to change the way they teach students - leveraging technology
  • Teach 21st century skills to students leveraging available technology so they can thrive in today’s world
  • Shift from teacher-centered learning to student-centered learning
  • Empower more than 1,000,000 public and private school teachers to transform the lives of this generation of students today - online, offline. anytime, anywhere.
