Teachers buy licenses at $10 per student and assign them to students for curriculum-aligned inquiry learning and STEAM writing projects, where students create their own books, collaborating with family and community.

Biography projects - Students interview family or community in ‘Communication for Connection’ activities. 

The process develops 21st century skills, academic results, and Social-Emotional Learning.

Students’ brains generate oxytocin, the chemical for strengthening relationships, feeling secure, and developing resilience.

Students’ content enriches lessons and books can be graded, included in portfolios, gifted, and sold.

Qualitative Research projects - Students develop STEAM skills by interviewing others on any topic.

Students have agency and differentiated means to collect, present and showcase their work.

Books are valuable to families and communities and can be sold to fundraise for schools.

Some businesses are funding licenses and donating to schools for Biography or Qualitative Research in their communities, eg; 

Aboriginal Digital Inclusion - Aboriginal youth interview their own community’s elders to learn and save oral histories, ancient knowledge, art, and culture.

Communities control the narrative and own the content, and can share and sell the books.
