Eduporium views the acquisition and evolution of technology skills as a necessary literacy for those living and working in the 21st century. However, the endless possibilities of virtual reality created by modern technology could be addictive and oftentimes tend to replace the real world. In order to bring students back to reality learning how to inventively alter it, Eduporium specifically selects technologies that enhance the 21st century skills commonly referred to as "The 4 C's:" Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication. We have designed a system of technology that progresses from one “C” to another in correlation with age-appropriate learning objectives. The tech that we have selected serves as the ultimate learning tool as it can be easily intertwined among all school subjects, supporting and enriching them, while helping kids of all ages learn and fine tune technology concepts by applying tech to learning.

Our system includes three progressive bundles of personally selected technology that focus on enhancing learning through creativity, critical thinking and collaboration. Our “Cool Tech Petting Zoos” are broken down into three levels featuring corresponding tech products for Pre-K–4, 5–8 and 9–12, emphasizing hands-on experience, STEAM education and project-based learning, respectively. In our workshops, we describe the fundamental principles of our system, how it is structured and progresses from one focus area to the next and how its contents develop the advancement of 21st century skills. We also share our practices by presenting the Tech Petting Zoos to students and teachers and leave time for the audience’s hands-on experience and experimentation with the samples from every bundle!
