Graduate all students ready for college and career success.

The new technology courses empower students to go beyond being tech users to become creators. Students use industry-standard tools to complete projects such as developing an iOS or Android app, creating a 3D video game, or designing a fashion collection.

Apex Learning, a recognized pioneer and innovator in online learning for secondary education, is excited to announce a new digital curriculum offering: project-based technology courses that range from coding and design to gaming and animation.

The new technology courses empower students to go beyond being tech users to become creators. Students use industry-standard tools to complete projects such as developing an iOS or Android app, creating a 3D video game, or designing a fashion collection.

“Not only is technology ubiquitous in the lives of today’s students, it has become as essential as reading, writing and arithmetic to prepare students for the future," said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO, Apex Learning. “Yet fewer than half of K–12 schools are able to offer technology courses.”

In these technology courses, students engage in problem-solving and critical thinking. Such skills and competencies are important in preparing students for the future and are applicable to any career, whether in technology or not.

The technology courses include support from online experts to ensure students can successfully complete their coursework and projects. This gives districts the opportunity to offer technology courses to students even if they don’t have teachers with expertise in the industry-standard tools.

Ten new technology courses will be available for the 2019-2020 school year with the first of these courses available in January 2019. For more details about these Technology Courses, visit: https://www.apexlearning.com/technology-courses
