All our solutions are based on four principles:

Student Tech Leaders

We believe that teams of well-prepared K-12 students are the key strategy for realizing meaningful technology integration. All Generation YES programs have STLs at the center.

Project-Based Learning

All Generation YES programs involve students designing, constructing, and assessing projects aligned to student and teacher learning.

Tech Integration

Providing support and resources to schools using technology for improved learning opportunities and academic achievement is a primary goal of the nonprofit Generation YES.

Data Collection & Assessment

Guided authentic assessment and reporting provides students with feedback and educators with solid data on student progress.

Success Stories

TechYES is very flexible--it fit right into our school's culture of high tech, high standards, and performance-based assessment.
