In order to avoid compromising our youth's future, a major paradigm shift from the delivery model of facts and information to a hybrid model that includes meaningful learning acquired through relevant experience is necessary.
Innovation Advancing Education (IAE) has developed data-driven programs that motivate student achievement and teacher leadership. IAE's New Hybrid Approach infuses real world relevance into curriculum by training students and teachers in the 4 Cs from Partnership for 21st Century Skills™ and by incorporating people who have industry experience into the classroom.
The 4Cs from Partnership for 21st Century Skills™ consist of Communication, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Creativity. However, IAE enhanced the 4C's by perceiving the concept as a 3-dimensional model. Click here to learn more about IAE's concept of the 4 Cs.

Creative Force Triptych is an interdisciplinary scholarship program from Innovation Advancing Education that is intended to introduce liberal arts student to the concepts of the 4 C's from the Partnership for 21st Century Skills™ (Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity).
The Creative Force Triptych program will rollout in three phases, with each phase adding a new discipline and demanding a more rigorous application of the 4 C’s.
Phase 1 of the program is being deployed at Tyler Junior College during the Fall 2012 - Spring 2013 semesters, and it will involve students interested in music composition and performance.
