A new approach to school needs new tools and new courses of study

A new approach to schools needs new tools and new courses of study. Opportunity Education’s Quest Forward Learning team created the Quest! App to provide innovative approaches to learning through “quests.” Created by experts, quests move beyond standard instruction and textbooks, enabling students to observe the world around them, uncover solutions to real problems, and create their own answers to questions about the world in which they live. After all, what good is it to memorize the old answers in a world where the questions keep changing?
