Founded in 1989, Rubicon set out to help institutions strategically implement technology as well as to create sustainable critical processes to better meet their goals. When the technology for mapping and managing curriculum wasn’t available for schools, in the late 90’s Rubicon devoted their collective energy to developing the first ever electronic Curriculum Management System, Atlas.
We have been tailoring and advancing that original Atlas system in order to meet the ever-changing needs of schools around the world ever since.
And now, along with our PD offerings and the introduction of our newest platform, Pleiades™ our educators have the tools to understand the interdependence between the planned, taught, and learned curriculum.
to help schools develop tailored curriculum solutions and sustainable school improvement processes to ensure every student has the chance to reach their goals.
that insight to the student experience through the planned and taught curriculum can be a powerful force for improvement in schools and districts. It promotes data-informed decision making, a culture of sharing and improvement, a routine of reflection, and a precedence for taking meaningful action to improve what students can learn.
to work tirelessly to meet every teacher and school where they are in designing, developing, mapping and managing their curriculum, aligning to standards and leaning outcomes, and integrating across learning experiences – all with the student in mind.
We believe learning is at its best when...
educators put individual student needs at the center of their curriculum, instruction, and assessment decisions.
educators make learning relevant and personal by balancing rigorous standards and expectations with each student’s aspirations and needs.
teachers are viewed as professional educators and learners with opportunities to grow, develop, and improve and are empowered to make data informed decisions.
there is a clear path to an end result for both teacher and student.
all educators know where their students are going in their learning journey and where each of their students are currently in that journey, in relation to where they are going.
educators have access to world-class tools, data, and information to inform instructional decisions in the best interests of each student.
schools have a managed process for conversation and reflection to guide meaningful continuous improvement based on evidence of learning.
technology reduces busy work for educators, providing greater insights and management through less time and effort.
The Rubicon Education Foundation was formed by Rubicon associates in the aftermath of the Dec 2004 tsunami near Indonesia. The mission of the Education Foundation is to build community and connections between educators to provide children in crisis with educational opportunity to develop into global citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
Rubicon adds a completely new dimension to Education through the ability to integrate Atlas, a tool used by schools around the world to design and analyze curriculum with powerful new tools.
Our suite of products provides the architecture to analyze the connection between the planned and taught curriculum and student outcomes.
We bring schools the ability to gauge the effectiveness of their curriculum based on evidence of learning and transparency across the entire educational community (teachers, parents and students) to make modifications to curriculum design and instruction to grow success for all children.
