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

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.

I am amazed at what the potential some of our students had and was hidden! Not only do they love doing this, but they love helping others as well.

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.

I am amazed.  This room is running itself.  The kids understand the GenYES site, and know exactly what to do.  A few of the kids are already certified… For a split second there I was almost annoyed at being bored and having shockingly little to do.  Then I realized that I have nothing to do because the kids are all working, focused, and helping each other!  What a wonderful reason to be bored!
