Vision: Maine educators are learning facilitators who design classrooms with personalization, technology, and universal design principles and allow students to be active constructors and interpreters of knowledge, and where the knowledge is not bound by disciplines, but rather begins with students’ questions and is explored through engaging, relevant, real-world problems and active learning. 

Mission: To develop, nurture, and foster educational innovation and new ideas in all levels of public-school organizations as we support educators, school leaders, and policymakers to advance pk-12 education through innovation in teaching and learning that improves education for all learners.
