As an education innovation project with its founding roots in both Silicon Valley and Beijing, ETU Education is dedicated to offer a student-centered whole-person education by combining progressive pedagogy, including social emotional learning, project/phenomenon baesd learning and real world inputs, with Chinaʼs culturally-rich curriculum, so as to cultivate active lifelong learners with high self-efficacy and innovative spirits, and most importantly, a passion to make change in their community.
Since the first school in Beijing in 2016, ETU has now built a global family of progressive schools in Palo Alto (imagination lab school-Global ETU Family), Beijing and Guangzhou in China. Through the partnership with the 25-year-old Beijing BISS International School (BISS) that offers all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, ISS will become a new addition to ETUʼs global network of partners.
Meanwhile, ETU is much more than a school network. With a unique team that is comprised of experienced educators, seasoned management executives and IT platform designers and engineers, ETU is building a platform that supports a better education ecosystem, in which students are put at the center of learning, teacher are well supported by a series of empowering professional development program, and school is put at the center of the community.
By addressing the core challenges of todayʼs education systematically, ETU hopes to explore a social engagement mechanism, so that the cogni- tive frontier of the society could be really brought into basic education to empower everyone to become the best version of themselves.
