Mission

Our mission is to improve the K-12 learning process by documenting, disseminating, and advocating for innovative, replicable strategies that prepare students to thrive in their future education, careers, and adult lives.

Description

Our vision is of a new world of learning, a place where students and parents, teachers and administrators, policy makers and the people they serve are all empowered to change education for the better; a place where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social-emotional learning, and access to new technology; a place where innovation is the rule, not the exception; a place where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st-century skills, especially in information literacy so they can:
– find, assess, and use information effectively and creatively
– work cooperatively and constructively with others
– use their strengths and talents to become empowered, productive citizens in our democratic society and the world at large

It’s a place of inspiration and aspiration based on the urgent belief that improving education is the key to the survival of the human race. We call this place Edutopia, and we provide not just the vision for this new world of learning but the real-world information and community connections to make it a reality.

Edutopia’s audience includes educators, parents, school board members, university faculty, community-based organizations, and the business community -- all groups working to create better schools for the twenty-first century.
