Education Accelerator for K-12 Technology Skills
Coding and other advanced technology skills are quickly becoming understood to be the "fourth foundation" of K-12 education, complementing the traditional triplet of Reading, Writing and Mathematics. 4th Foundation supports Students, their Teachers, Parents and School Administrators in this exciting transformation of learning experiences.
Our curriculum develops technology skills from kindergarten to university bridge. We focus on learning outcomes that are demonstrated in portfolio projects, with domain areas such as web development, robotics, video games, social media, data science and the internet of things. We emphasize not just basic coding skills, but creative and critical thinking in specific application areas.
No previous experience in the K-12 area is necessary. You will work with our team to translate your knowledge and expertise into youth-friendly formats.
We are seeking workshop instructors, curriculum designers, online course developers, webinar producers and ebook authors.
