Generation YES » Youth & Educators Succeeding | emerging learning | Scoop.it

Generation YES is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) with a mission to empower students and teachers to use technology to improve education in their own school. Our school-friendly online tools and innovative project-based curriculum build a learning community where students work alongside their teachers as technology leaders, collaborators and mentors. 15 years of research experience and proven scientific results show that when schools trust and collaborate with their students to integrate technology, academic success follows.

 

We believe in Participatory Learning - where students and teachers work together to create optimal conditions for learning in every classroom; where students are agents of change, rather than objects of change.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 30, 2013 1:33 PM

GenYes has been a great idea that's weathered the test of time. Students help teachers with technology. What better role reversal could there be?  If your school is struggling with tech support, the answer is right here.  Even if your school is cruising along with great tech infrastructure, letting the kids take over is one of the best things you can do to prepare a modern learner.
