Through SVEF Pitch Games, district teams find and try EdTech software that supports student learning. Creative teachers bring this work to life, sharing the new software with students and giving feedback to the company. Ultimately, our mission is to achieve technology equity for improved student outcomes by leveraging research, practice, and policy.
This year teachers are using PenPal Schools to build 21st Century Learning Skills. Students are communicating with pen pals across the country and the world, and using tools like virtual reality to see other countries and cultures right in front of their eyes.
The iHub Methodology
Assess: Conduct technology assessment to identify needs
Plan: Create an action plan to meet needs identified in assessment
Partner: Facilitate a rapid feedback cycle between EdTech entrepreneurs and classrooms for product evaluation
Adopt: Commit to being an iHub school to review iHub products and subsequently adopt an iHub tested product
For each round, we partner with teams of teachers from school sites to pilot and give feedback to EdTech companies. We would love to hear from teachers who are interested in our program. Applications will open during late summer 2017. Submit your name below to be notified when educator team applications are open.
