Masters of Education


The turning point in education history

There is a correct technology to educate. It's a technology which includes the most effective and successful methods to educate students such that they enjoy learning, gain certainty in what they know and attain competence in applying what they have learned. Much of this technology was developed over centuries by some of history's greatest thinkers.

Unfortunately this technology is largely unused or forgotten within most school systems.

Kampelmann Academy utilizes these methods, interwoven with 21st century communications technology.
