Transformative Curriculum for Technology Education
Our K-12 curriculum is customized for students of every age and empowers educators to enable all students’ technology education with incredible resources, training, and support.
From the Past to the Future
Traditionally, we have been preparing students for 20th-century learning centered around core subjects such as Math, English, Science, and Social Studies. Certified Schools courses provide educators and students with an integrated technology education integrating 21st-century learning into 20th-century subjects seamlessly.
In the 21st century, educators are shifting their focus from preparing students for the 20th-century to preparing students for the future. This is reflected in a focus on STEAM, PBL, 21st-century skills (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity) and enabling self-directed learners. Certified Schools lessons are designed not only to prepare students for the future we know but also the yet to be known future of learning, work, and education.
