We’re an organization designed for the 21st century, here to make learning relevant, powerful and authentic to students.




Our Organization

21CLI was started by senior educators who wanted to better connect teachers and K-12 school leaders, to share good practices around what learning in schools can and must be in the 21st century.

To that end, we bring together diverse teams to meet our partners' needs. Our output takes form in many shapes and sizes, but our mission remains constant: to help educators and schools develop best practices and their internal capabilities for education today. With our support, over 5,000 educators and counting have discovered effective uses for technology in learning, teaching and administrative operations.

Our Beliefs

Worry about uptake, not uptime.

Stability and accessibility of information technology systems are irrelevant if no one is using them.

Learn from practice.

We learn from our clients, from each other, and from the people around us.

Focus on the learner.

Any information technology project should begin with the driving question: how will this improve learning?
