WES has been awarded the Strategic Ed Tech (SET) Gold Certification in recognition for our work in educational technology and innovation through SET's Framework for K-12 Edtech and Innovation. (Click HERE to learn more about SET.)
SET's framework consists of four overlapping lenses: budget, personnel, technology infrastructure, and (educator) mindset. Together, these lenses impact the operations of a school and teaching practices which subsequently impacts the strength of a school's edtech and innovation program.
WES has achieved great successes in each field and thus has been deservedly awarded SET's highest certification. WES successfully implements innovative student programs which foster key skill development such as critical thinking, communication, creativity, and higher order thinking related to subject matter and career and college readiness.
This award was presented to WES during the 2018 SET Lab Exhibition on June 1 where our very own Katherine Owens presented the findings from her six-month long research study.
