We know that not all learning settings work for all people.
Therefore, we are dedicated to creating alternative educational platforms that inspire and engage students, and allow them to grow as individuals.
Here is a sampling of projects we have led and supported, some of which are resources that we recommend to you.
True 21st Century Learning
We've been studying the future of learning for years. Now we are supporting this mind-blowing, networked 21st century learning community based in Bethel, CT. Mark our words. This is the future.

Ignite Your Everyday Creativity
The International Center for Studies in Creativity (ICSC) founded the first creative studies program in 1967. Now ICSC’s “Ignite Your Everyday Creativity” is accessible to anyone with an internet connection, for free on demand from Coursera. We were on the team of leaders in the field, led by Dr. Cyndi Burnett and Dr. John Cabra, to develop this MOOC designed to ignite creativity around the world.
Bookopolis, like GoodReads for kids, delivers a cutting-edge platform to spark and support love of reading and community. We collaborated with Founder Kari Riedel on a higher-level thinking approach to book reports. Get to know Bookopolis here.
