Over the last twenty years, technology has reorganized how we live, work, communicate, and learn. Traditional schooling evolved during a time of information scarcity where the sources of knowledge were confined to the books at hand and the expert in the room. Today, information and knowledge is found everywhere; "Know-how" and "know-what" has been supplemented with "know-where" -- the understanding of where to find the knowledge and expertise needed. We believe our students will live their entire lives in an ever-increasing technological world, and will need to become master digital learners as well as hands-on makers.
At PRIDE, our students are highly connected to knowledge networks, so that their learning -- both formal and informal -- can become highly personalized, self-paced, and powerful. Students approach core content learning through teacher-curated "playlists" of engaging resources, generating the kind of self-direction and motivation they will use for the rest of their lives.
