Learn to Start Certifications

As a debate, teaching content versus teaching skills as the foundation for any curriculum needs to end. Traditional academics has focused on content for decades as the means through which students develop skills. But this is inefficient and limiting.

Learn to Start Technology

Technology inside of education must always be a tool instead of the core of the solution. When technology is treated as a tool, it’s used with nuance, with pedagogy, and is tested appropriate to student outcomes. When technology is the solution, inefficiencies are more accepted, lack of relevance isn’t questioned, and purpose isn’t differentiated. Solutions […]

Teachers as Mentors

In a traditional academic system of education, teachers teach knowledge rather than guide skill development as the primary focus of their curriculum.

Siloed Subjects Create a Myopic View of Learning

In a traditional academic system of education, subjects and levels are separate entities rather than an interconnected experience.
