• Make to Learn

    We make to learn. Making is playful exploration. Making is self-directed and interest-driven. Making is critical and creative problem solving.

  • Digital Media and Learning

    We use digital media to create, consume and connect. We learn to navigate within a complex information society and effectively produce and distribute media that communicates to authentic audiences and networks.

  • Learning Pathways

    We are building learning pathways. Through digital badging, community partnerships and our K-13 curriculum continuum students participate in learning networks that go beyond the classroom.

  • Teacher as Designer

    We are building the capacity of teachers to become designers of powerful learning experiences and environments.

  • Unlocking Potential

    The only way to free potential is to embrace iteration. We experiment, we take risks, we make mistakes in order to learn and try again.

  • Convergence in Action

    We are empowering schools, teachers, and students.
