WHAT WE DO

We improve education by linking learning to real life.

EVERYONE
EVERYONE
Tellusthepoint gathers and analyzes data from graduates and employers to solve the puzzle of how schoolwork is linked to real life. We believe that education is too important, too time-consuming and too expensive for students and employers to merely hope that students are learning the knowledge and skills they need to be successful. The surveys we conduct, the educational platform and social network we are building, the Knowledge Pledge and everything else we do are all designed to link learning to real life. We are linking all subjects taught in school to the people, products and jobs that use them. Our goal is to ensure that all students graduate with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.

Linking learning to real life is the future of education. Thank you for helping us to create it.

GRADUATES
GRADUATES
Tellusthepoint provides graduates with an easy way to make a big social impact. We believe that feedback from graduates who are dealing with real life is the key to solving the puzzle of how schoolwork is used in the real world. By simply sharing how you have used schoolwork in your life, you will help to solve one of the biggest problems in education and society. Whether you are a recent graduate, have been working for more than 30 years, or are retired, your feedback will positively impact students everywhere. When you join Tellusthepoint, you will discover from other graduates new and interesting ways to use the knowledge and skills you already have. You may also discover the knowledge and skills you need to acquire for new jobs and new opportunities you may wish to pursue.

EMPLOYERS
EMPLOYERS
Tellusthepoint helps employers to analyze how they use schoolwork in their organizations. The data analysis enables employers to make personnel decisions with greater precision, and it enables them to understand their products and services as practical applications of schoolwork. We also help employers to communicate the results to educators and students with the goals of linking schoolwork to products, services and jobs, and increasing the likelihood that graduates will have the knowledge and skills they need to work for the organization. Employers who operate businesses are invited to promote their products and services on Tellusthepoint within the context of linking learning to life.

SCHOOLS
SCHOOLS
Tellusthepoint helps schools and colleges to better engage students in learning and better prepare them for work. In addition to providing information, we facilitate partnerships between schools/colleges and employers to link learning to life. We can also collaborate with schools and colleges to align course offerings and curriculum with the needs articulated by employers. Schools and colleges that partner with Tellusthepoint will position themselves to secure federal, state and private funding to support programs to link learning to life.

STUDENTS
STUDENTS
Tellusthepoint helps students to understand how graduates and employers use schoolwork in the real world. Our platform enables students to prepare themselves for their future jobs by showing them which subjects and skills they should study in school in order to succeed in the jobs they want. We are a student-driven project. Students are rewarded for actively recruiting graduates and employers who will tell us how schoolwork is used in real life. Students who help to build Tellusthepoint will be able to list it on their college and employment applications as a service activity that benefits them and their communities. The real magic of Tellusthepoint is that efforts by students to bring employers and graduates to Tellusthepoint will simultaneously help them get ready for life.

FAMILIES
FAMILIES
Tellusthepoint helps parents and extended family members to share with students in their families how they use schoolwork in the real world. While graduates are encouraged to share their experiences with students everywhere, we encourage families to first give feedback to the students in their lives. A family membership on Tellusthepoint is also an easy way for parents to enable students less than 13 years of age to benefit from Tellusthepoint.

COMMUNITIES
COMMUNITIES
Tellusthepoint helps communities to create closer ties among residents, schools and employers to enable linked learning. Whether they are cities, counties or states, communities have a special role to play in linking learning to life because they create laws that affect all areas of life. Everyone will benefit from the closer ties that Tellusthepoint helps communities to create: students will be more engaged in learning and better prepared for work if employers help schools to link learning to real life, businesses or employers are more likely to get qualified workers if they help schools to prepare students for available jobs, and communities will benefit from having more effective schools, better employment opportunities for their residents, and more vibrant economies.

PRODUCTS
PRODUCTS
Tellusthepoint helps to present products and services as practical applications of knowledge and skills. From personal items like clothing, cosmetics and computers, to household fixtures like TVs, refrigerators and furniture, to intangible things like music, insurance and repairs, and everything in between, all products and services can be linked to the subjects taught in schools. By being featured on Tellusthepoint, products and services will become much more than commercial items: they will become educational tools at the heart of linking learning to real life for the benefit of schools and students everywhere.
