At the center of our thoughts: Students, Teachers, Employers, Institutions and Country
KW21 is a data-driven educational platform enabling educators to align Standards, Assessments and Instruction in order to maximize student achievement and teacher effectiveness.

The Whole is Greater than the Sum of the Parts:
The KW21 interactive educational platform offers many processes and tools that individually provide much needed support for students, teachers, schools, districts, agencies, and other professional organizations. However, the true power of KW21 is the interactive impact of these processes and tools. When used together they can foster best instructional practice and promote deeper pedagogical sensibility.
Pedagogy will be the Great Differentiator:
We believe, along with Michael Fullan, that in the long run what will make the most difference to students’ achievement levels is to create an environment in which the most effective instructional practices are shared among teachers and faithfully implemented.
Professional Learning Communities (PLCs):
Making sure students are learning is a coordinated effort that requires the collaboration of many people. Students are better served when faculty members, school principals and district leaders collaborate with each other to share what they are doing and learning.
Relevant, Viable and Measured Curriculum (Rvmc):
In this day and age it is impossible to learn everything. Choices need to be made. Those choices should start with the inclusion of the most important knowledge and skills that will allow learners to have rich and productive lives.
Ongoing Monitoring of Student Learning:
Being able to provide student profiles of strengths and challenges requires a system of assessments that covers and monitors what must be learned by all students.
Ensuring Effective Instruction:
Create units and lessons based on the priority standards. Access student specific proficiency profiles or whole class proficiency profiles on the priority standards before you even start teaching.
Responding When Students Don't Learn:
The imperative that all students learn requires an efficient means of figuring out in a very timely fashion the supplemental needs of the students. Those supplemental needs might be for interventions or for enrichment.
Standards based Education and Priority Standards:
As a way to measure students the bell curve shows us how one compares to another. It is possible, using the bell curve to be above average and still know very little and be able to very little. It is also possible to be below average and be very competent. Standards change that.
