The core of our work is to help educators reach their full potential by providing Training For Educators By Educators on technology-enabled, student-centered learning. Our programs are built for educators by educator innovators and leaders. They are immediately applicable in the classroom, designed for optimum participation, and available for college credit and micro-credentials.
We support the Open Educational Resources movement in order to reduce the most common barrier to effectively integrating technology with strong instruction: high-quality curriculum. We train educators in the creation and customization of open materials that are engaging and relevant for students, and curate their content in our Digital Content Warehouse.
We provide Consulting Services to ensure that the courses and technology selected at a given school or district are aligned with both its learning model and its readiness for student-centered learning. Through our work, we facilitate the adoption and evolution of cutting edge technology that supports pedagogical best practice, bridging between the EdTech and Education worlds.
When Students Drive Their Own Education, Equity is Possible
The roots of inequity are firmly grounded in culture and history. To create equity, we strive for a model of education where curricula reflect students' ways of knowing and their people's history, behavioral expectations respect students' ways of interacting, and espoused and/or implicit values of a school acknowledge what is learned at home. By advancing the practice of student-centered learning, iLearn Collaborative aims to empower both educators and learners to make this model of education possible. By helping to integrate technology with strong instructional practice, we make equal access to this model of learning possible.
And with the full talents, resources, and passions of everyone ready and eager to solve the challenges of the world, anything is possible
