All of our workshops & professional development activities focus on active learning and knowledge construction

Liberating the creative potential of teachers is a great investment

For decades, we have helped educators teach for the future instead of the past

Experience counts.

The future starts today.

As recognized leaders in the educational maker movement, the team at CMK Futures is uniquely qualified to help you create learning experiences that prepare students to solve problems their teachers may never anticipate.

Inventing the future of education means trusting teachers as key stakeholders in the process. Modern education requires engaged, informed professionals who are partners in designing better learning experiences and shaping the modern learning environment.

Investing in that future makes sense.

Today is the right day to start.
