Institutions recognized as such show innovative use of technology in learning, teaching, and the school environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment, the KIS said.

“KIS engages students in their learning by framing lessons on authentic problems, requiring learners to apply their skills and knowledge to generate multiple solutions.”
