Research shows that authentic-audience, project-based learning (PBL) is a more equitable and effective learning method, and approximately 80% of high school teachers report wanting to bring authentic PBL into to their classrooms. Only 1% do. This is because it is 5 times more effort for teachers to find a real-world partner with a suitable problem to solve, align the project to academic standards or learning outcomes, and then adapt the supporting teaching and materials to the inevitable twists and turns that come with a real-world project in real-time.
Sidekick flips the lesson planning process and, using proprietary technology, makes authentic PBL curriculum development as easy as traditional curriculum development. Students feel engaged and are exposed to new career and academic opportunities through real-world experience; industry and academic partners connect with a robust but often overlooked talent pipeline.
