Chicago, IL – September 17, 2015 - Imparting 21st century skills means starting young learners with a proper foundation and thoughtfully advancing students with age-appropriate offerings at each grade and level.
For its new 2015-2016 portfolio of curriculum solutions, Sunburst has been working with three category leaders – StudioWeb, Tynker and Wonder Workshop – that are passionate about introducing programming, coding and computer science to students spanning K-12.
“It is our great privilege to work with the very best-in-class providers of specialized curriculum for learning programming and coding, each offering their own age-appropriate solutions. Their engaging programs are consistent with new curriculum mandates appearing across the country,” says Holly DeLeon, VP of Curriculum Integration. “Our instructional and product teams have spent the last 12 months evaluating dozens of solutions focusing on our country’s education commitment to new, 21st century skills development. Our responsibility to our school district partners is to offer innovative solutions that are instructionally sound, as well as implementable across diverse teaching and learning environments,” she said. “This combined suite reflects that proven and credible approach. We consider it our mission to support the process by helping take risk out of innovation.”
