[Reston, Virginia]: In June 2021, EdTech Digest named iSchool for the Future as the finalist of the annual Award in the 21st Century Skills Solution Category. The EdTech Awards is one of the largest recognition programs in education technology in the United States and has been in existence for 11 years.  This year’s awards were announced to a worldwide audience of educators, technologists, students, parents, and policymakers interested in building a better future for learners and leaders in the education and workforce sectors.

“We are honored to have received this recognition of our work from EdTech Digest.  At iSchool we are dedicated to helping children unlock their inner brilliance so they can use it to change our world as responsible change makers and innovators,” says Nuria Gabitova, Founder of iSchool for the Future.

“Our unique and exclusive teaching methods combine the hands on learning and global perspective, with our STEAM SELTM approach, integrating science, technology, engineering, arts, math, and social and emotional life skills.   This methodology has proven effective at inspiring children to think creatively and to be more considerate to their environment and fellow humans.”

EdTech’s annual awards program shines a spotlight on interactive tools, inspiring leaders and innovative trendsetters across the K-12, Higher Education, and Skills and Workforce sectors. This year’s finalists and winners were judged based on various criteria, including pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential. 

iSchool for the Future was awarded this honor for its impact on over 5,000 children, helping to improve their social and emotional learning and overall academic performance through its STEAM SEL curriculum and for its unique training of educators to use this methodology in their curriculums.  This program equips educators with the practical tools and techniques to create supportive online / blended learning environments where all students can enhance their social and emotional competencies, grow academically, feel a sense of belonging, and thrive – regardless of their life circumstances.
