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

GenYES is a win, win, win. IT Departments get less on their plate. Staff get things fixed. Students feel valued and empowered.

Thank you Dennis. I'm no expert by any means, but we are learning as we go. The kids are receptive to the program. The part I like ... is that it makes them think. I think the longer we have the program, obviously, the easier it will be for the kids to come up with ideas.

I have been very, very proud of the work our students have done and how they reflect the use of 21st Century skills. From them, I have received a video on animal cruelty, an illustrated book of poems, a movie on snowmobiling, an illustrated children’s book, and much, much more. Not only have the students completed projects that interest them, but the skills they have learned will last them a lifetime.
