THE CHALLENGE

A profound gap exists between the knowledge and skills most students traditionally learn in school and the knowledge and skills they need for success in an increasingly more competitive, connected, and technology driven workplace. 

OUR SOLUTION

An advanced immersive tech curriculum that teaches learners to be computational thinkers who can utilize technology to innovate and solve complex problems. Our curriculum is rooted upon computational thinking, structured around our Digital Economy. It merges Entrepreneurship, Software Development, 21st Century Skills, and Web 2.0 Technologies.

Computational Thinking

Formulate a complex problem and solve using a technical solution through logic, analysis, and algorithmic thinking.

Digital Economy

Recognize your rights, responsibilities, and opportunities in our interconnected digital world.

Entrepreneurship

Practice the Lean Startup Methodology to deliver your solution faster through experiments, iterative development and validated learning.

Software Development

Design, Deliver, Test and Validate your complex solution using SCRUM, an agile software development framework to go from idea to minimum viable product.

21st Century Skills

Possess and enhance social, emotional and cognitive skills critical for college, career and life success.

Web 2.0 Technologies

Create, design, and develop with collaborative tools to broaden your perspective, enrich learning, and work more effectively and efficiently.

OUR MODEL

Blended Hybrid Project Based Learning and Flipped Classroom Model

Our custom integrated curriculum fosters a blended model approach to learning which incorporates a hybrid of both Project Based learning and Flipped Classroom model.

Students are supported, stay on task, and learn in a variety of face-face, digital or hybrid environments.

Students work both collaboratively and independently on a short or long term project tackling a problem posed

Students will be tasked with enhancing their knowledge around concepts needed for the course through interactive activities followed by checking for understanding

Designed to run in live classroom settings, remotely, or at students own pace

WHICH TRACK IS RIGHT FOR YOUR LEARNERS?

IDEALStudent Startup is our flagship STEAM program. 

Through a hackathon students are presented with a challenge to identify and solve a complex technical problem with a social impact by building a web site or app. Grouped into small teams, students present their final solution through a Demo Day Pitch competition.

We offer three tracks that service teachers, educators, and parents/guardians of middle – high school students:

For School Districts and Educators, we offer the Web and App Track.

For Parents looking to help give their teens a tech competitive edge, we offer the Bootcamp Track.

Enhanced Curriculum Option        

It’s one thing to build great tech that creates value for others. It’s another to use that tech to also create value for yourself. The Advanced Monetization module can be added to the Web and Bootcamp Track to monetize a product or service, and to the App Track as a fundraising option.
