Tools of Creation: Equipping Authors of the Future


What if we could provide kids with the opportunity to find out what it looks like from the other side of the screen? Actually, we can.

We believe we can do better and design opportunities for kids to explore their potential with customized and adaptive tools and incorporate portfolio assessment in their learning journey.
