About our pedagogical approach

Every educational initiative is core to furtherance of Eyebeam’s mission. We believe in:

  • Openness: to teach technology through art, encouraging self-expression and inquiry with the goal to create learning habits that are long lasting and self-perpetuating.
  • Justice: to engage students to think critically about technology practices and how they can be used to further social justice, equality and activism.
  • Invention: to empower youth to see technology as a tool for creation, enabling them to be producers, not only consumers.
