Collaborative and creative experience…anywhere!

The next generation does not have the necessary problem solving, critical thinking, and continuous learning skills allowing them to meet the challenges of the future–a future that will be defined by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a global technology revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live and work.

The MATTER Innovation Hub is offered through a collaborative partnership with Jamf.

Key MATTER Innovation Hub Principles

Engaging Environment

Promotes active learning, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, creativity and leadership development. Emphasizing the importance of gender equality in learning, the MIH is a safe, welcoming, student-empowering environment, providing equal opportunities for personal growth for tomorrow’s leaders.

Student-Centered Learning

The MIH learning environment provides for a gradual shift of teaching methods away from a traditional teacher-centric approach and toward a more enriching, engaging, and personalized student-centered focus. Using STEM/STEAM curriculum, the MIH prepares learners of all ages to meet the demands of tomorrow’s technological challenges.

Sustainable Design

Turnkey Apple classroom solution that includes solar power, Internet, networking, and app-based curriculum delivery for 250 kids for three years. Designed for ease of use, implementation and maintenance. Three-year support of all included equipment and systems.

MATTER Innovation Hub Implementations
