“The revised curriculum increases student engagement strategies with relevant activities and career awareness in all areas of IT. According to Glassdoor, 13 of the 25 highest-paying U.S. jobs for 2018 are in tech…. The ITX curriculum really hits the mark! Students learn new technology skills and explore in-demand jobs and careers. I’m learning something new every day and I’m the teacher.”

“IT Exploration’s new alignment with Precision Exams has given me a scope and sequence to follow as I create my curriculum maps for our technology courses at my school. Our school teaches the components of the ITX curriculum over the course of two semester-long classes in 8th and 9th grade. There is more than enough here now for teachers to teach a full year course or to pick and choose how they want to prioritize the standards within their shorter courses.”
