We believe in empowering students to think critically about the media they consume and practice digital citizenship. 21st century teaching should build both reading literacy and digital media literacy to prepare students for success. Using diverse multimedia resources to contextualize reading and writing standards, we’re helping students build meaningful connections between school and life. 
Today’s students need to know how to effectively find and evaluate online research. Frontier’s vetted multimedia resources give students the freedom to explore real world digital content within a structure that keeps students safe and on task. By engaging learners with an inquiry based approach, Frontier is building the next generation of writers and creators. 


Frontier is a web-based program that’s used by students, teachers, and school administrators.
