Hive is skill-building edtech innovation center designed by teachers for teachers to help students develop as globally competent learners preparing them for success today, and in the future. Hives are dynamic ecosystems focused in the Educational Technology sector located inside a K-12 school facility. In 2015 we launched a successful proof of concept within the District School Board of Niagara, which today continues to serve the teachers, students, and community in Niagara, Ontario with a wealth of unique educational programs, services, partnership opportunities and training.
