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

I cannot express how much I appreciate the great assistance [the STLs] have given me.  They are not only extremely knowledgeable, but have attitudes that always show they want to help people.

Janet Hastings

Duvall, Washington

By implementing the GenYES program at my school, my third grade students became leaders and mentors for teachers, other students, their parents, and local business leaders in our community.

Kathy Brookshire

Meridian, Mississippi

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.

Mary Buddenhagan

St. Johnsville, New York

We just concluded our last teacher workshop with the students and the feedback from the teachers supports GenYES research- what teachers like MOST about the workshops were working with the GenYES students!  They want the students to continue their learning in instructional design to support teachers in the future, so I have a direction for next year.
