Memorial Day Weekend marks the end of the school year for many schools in the United States; it marks the end of an era, of students who graduated and are now moving on to their next phase of life; it also marks the beginning of a summer filled with fun and frolic for our students, and rest and relaxation for our teachers. It’s fitting then, at this juncture of chapters closed and new ones opened, that we decided to have a Memorial Day Weekend be the unveiling of our outstanding MAD-nextgen product update – The New Frontier of MAD-learn.
Before we tell you about the new features and functionalities that we have been busy building for you, we wanted to step back for a second and look at the big picture with you. We know that the jobs that our students are going to have access to when they graduate are VASTLY different than they were when we graduated. Our mission at MAD-learn is to ensure that we give every single student in our technology driven world access and exposure to understanding how technologies are made, not just used. We want to ensure that every student can learn more and understand more about today’s relevant and far-reaching career options like design, programming, testing, product development, entrepreneurship, and much more. And we want to do this in a way that is cohesive and conducive to our classrooms of today. Vicki Davis @coolcatteacher who has been a power user of MAD-learn for 3 years now says it best…
To do these things in better and more effective ways, and to ensure that we can constantly ease the busy life of our teachers and students, our product and engineering teams work round the clock to make upgrades to MAD-learn.
