The Trusted advice you need for Technological Innovation
Technology is causing a renaissance in every aspect of our lives, including teaching and learning. In 1996, I started the Renaissance Institute to help educators manage this change and to share technical expertise among schools. Over the past 25 years, we have developed The Renaissance Framework as a model for the role technology can play while maintaining the cherished aspects of traditional education.
Trustworthy, independent advice is key to your organization. As fee-only advisors, we remain dedicated to our clients as a trusted resource that will always be vendor and product-neutral. Increasing accountability and effectiveness while decreasing your costs is the direct result of working with us.
Institute Advisors are practicing educators, engineers, and technologists. Their role is to provide insight into the current and emerging technology that can be leveraged to meet our clients’ instructional and business needs.
Much like a consortium, we provide a platform to share technical expertise among organizations. The Institute includes advisors with expertise and successful experience in actual K-12 schools, universities, and corporate settings made available to your organization on a part-time, fractional basis. This model provides access to highly sought-after engineers and skillsets without the cost or hassle of hiring and retaining these individuals in rapidly changing and specialized hiring markets.
