What a great honor Holberton just received from EdTech Digest. We learned yesterday that we had earned an EdTech Leadership Award in the category “School Leader” as part of the 2017 EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest.
Here’s what they had to say:
“From old school to new school, 21st-century education is in the midst of a paradigm shift. Chalkboards have given way to smartboards, desktop clutter to digital clean, disparate data to dashboard clarity, and isolated teachers to connected educators,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program. “Yet while evidence of the power of technology’s transformative effect on matters of learning is all around us, the power to energize education still lies within us. Holberton is on the leading edge of providing a better learning environment for a new generation of learners, they are changing school culture with purpose-driven project-based collaborative learning and getting great results. We need more of this kind of energy and mission-driven leadership in education.”
EdTech Digest is a significant resource in the educational community so we are very excited to be recognized with such a prestigious award. Holberton’s mission is to provide high-quality education to as many people, from as many walks of life, as possible.
We are open to anyone — ages of 18 to 128, whether an experienced programmer or not. The selection process is based only on talent and motivation. We enable students from every community and background to have the opportunity to become a software engineer. That’s also why the school is investing in students with no upfront tuition at all. Students contribute back to the program when they find a well paying job, via a percentage of their income.
In fact, applications are now open for the May and September batches: Apply now.
Come see what all the excitement is about.
