The Need


The Need


Bridge the gap between the traditional classroom
and the capacities of today's tools.

The standard K-12 classroom that we see today in the United States was born over a century ago and aligned with the most current resources of that time. Technology, educational resources, and pedagogic theory have since come a long way, but this accelerated rate of advancement is leaving the traditional classroom behind. A re-vision is imperative to bridge the gap between the traditional classroom of the 20th Century and capacities of today's tools.
