    • 3-8: All textbooks and curricula are digital.

    • K-12: It gives students access to comprehensive academic programs that are differentiated for a large range of competencies and develop the young mind beyond the limits of traditional, testing-based education.

  • Leadership: Technology helps to develop confident, capable students who understand responsibility is a part of leadership.   Technology helps students form communities and communicate their opinions on projects and assignments, which in turn develops the students' communication skills, which have a lasting effect on their professional lives as well.

  • Citizenship:  By fostering critical thinking, empathy, and responsible decision-making, it empowers them to be informed and engaged participants in the digital world. Digital citizens understand the importance of respect, kindness, and ethical behavior in online interactions, creating a positive digital culture.
