As schools everywhere try to change, improve or create STEM / technology projects, lessons or full curriculum cost is often cited as a major obstacle. At face value it would seem common sense that integrating technology into a classroom must be costly. Well, not exactly. Or even better said not at all! FREE is still a pretty good price.

Fact is there are terrific resources available to schools to build STEM, CTE or tech-ed courses around that can result in SAVING MONEY! Let’s use...

What technologies should we use, what technical skills are the most important for a student to learn in relation to future employment and then finally how do we make that all “teachable”?

When developing the courses in game design and apps design we had to choose which platforms to use and...

I’m not going to name any names…but one of our employees told a story today about their first day of school as a 3rd grader. She was all dressed up in her new school clothes and ready to pose for mom outside on the front door step (everyone poses on the front door step for a picture on the first day of school…right?) for the family album, before heading out that morning.

Just as mom was snapping the picture, an elderly lady happened to be walking by our (I mean “her”) house with...

While doing some reading on Career and Technical Education this morning I came across an article on greatschools.org containing some exciting statistics!

“School-to-career courses at the high school level have additional benefits that promote positive outcomes for students who enroll – namely higher attendance rates and achievement. For example, the attendance rate for school-to-career students in one Philadelphia school district was 87.5% (10% higher that other students)...

We offer curricula that were designed to engage the student with project-based learning and get them excited to come to class each day. Can you think of anything better than a classroom full of enthusiastic students? We can’t!

We’d love to hear from you! Send your ideas, testimonials, comments and feedback to ...
