Using entrepreneurship education as a vehicle to
transform students, educators and schools.

For Students:
We design life-changing learning experiences where students master skills and gain substantive confidence by solving real world problems on teams.

 

For Educators:
We provide training, toolkits and ongoing support for the implementation of a pilot course using radically different teaching practices for 21st century learning.

 

For Schools:
We create a “proof of concept” for 21st century teaching & learning that is personalized to the needs of your school and sparks school-wide innovation.

 

 

– Our Origin –

Wildfire Education emerged from the Miller Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies Educators Program at Hawken School.
We are a separate non-profit organization formed in 2017 due to the explosive growth of Hawken’s Educators Program and the increasing global demand for our services.

Instructional Practices for 21st Century Learning

“The Korda Method is an excellent turnkey solution for educators [that makes] teachers feel confident taking risks in their curriculum that combines content with building 21st century skills, not only because the methodology has proven successful, but because the training and support materials lead teachers every step of the way.”

Gabrielle Russomagno, Germantown Academy’s Director of Innovation

WE TRAIN EDUCATORS

We have trained hundreds of public and private school educators to develop their own entrepreneurship and problem-based programs. They are successfully implementing this model in a variety of K-12 courses such as entrepreneurship, science, humanities, engineering, technology and global studies.
