Learning Technology Tools
for Forward-Thinking Teachers

The Quest Forward Workspace:

Technology tools that power active, skills-forward teaching and learning.

Too many high school students today are disengaged from their learning. They don’t see how it will impact their lives, either now or in the future. What students need instead is relevance, engagement and real-life skills development.

You read about it every day: schools being forced to choose between focusing on their most talented students or on those furthest behind. It shouldn’t be that way. Schools should be able to do both — well.

“Teachers engage them more in their learning. She loves that. It helps her to think critically. She gets the opportunity to use her personal talents, to show that she’s mastering what she learns… that’s exactly what she needed.”

– Lisa, Parent, Quest Forward Academy Omaha

Engage students with:

  • Academics that are relevant to students’ lives

  • Real-world skills development that is measurable

  • Individualized, personalized learning pathways and support for each student

  • Detailed performance data on students, courses, and teachers in real-time, so that teachers know the precise progress of each student

Higher quality learning experiences for students — and more rewarding teaching for teachers.

Unlike other solutions that simply seek to make instruction efficient, the Quest Forward Learning Workspace is focused on individual students learning better.

While learning has become a one-size-fits-all approach where many students struggle, the Quest Forward Workspace provides agency to each student.

Personalized pacing and individual feedback-driven assessments enable students to engage at their own level, expand their skills, and succeed academically.

A Practical Solution

If you are using other learning management systems and curriculum, you’re likely frustrated by poor usability and a framework that doesn’t quite fit. Quest offers well-designed core features tailored to your school.

All licenses include individualized professional learning and change management support to make the adoption seamless and successful. And unlike other systems, the Quest Forward Workspace includes a complete high school curriculum.

Support Every Step of the Way

Changing your LMS can be complicated. But freeing your teachers and students from outdated, inflexible systems is liberating.

We built our adoption process on best practices in change management, and we provide support at every level: logistics and technology; teacher professional development; curriculum adaptation; student communication; and results-based measurements.

As a result, we can help you adopt the Quest Forward Workspace in as little as three months.


New in 2023

Each of the Quest Forward Workspace tools will become available to teachers individually. Teachers can use each tool to make active, skills-forward learning easier in their classes, with minimal setup, and no IT support required.

Feedback Forward

Provide targeted, rich feedback to each student on their academic work as well as their skills practice and growth. Feedback Forward also proposes grades on student work based on the feedback you give, reducing the time and effort required to support your students and complete grading requirements.

Quest Forward

Quest enables project and mastery learning with projects for grades 9-12 designed around widely used standards in English, Math, Social Sciences, and Science. With Quest, you can use existing projects, modify as needed, or build your own from scratch. Quest also supports fast formative feedback, mastery assessment for academics and skills, and helps you track and understand student engagement.

“Students get to focus on the skills that are going to help them with their futures. Whether they’re going to a career or to a traditional university, they’re going to have a skill set that makes them better self-learners. And so, I go to my job every day really looking forward to what the day brings.”

– Ed Vogel, Mentor and Mentor Coach, Quest Forward Academy Omaha
