InnovateEDU brings together leaders in education and technology to design and develop breakthrough models and tools to help ensure that all students graduate from high school ready to succeed in college and careers of their choosing. We train educators and educate students with the goal of substantially improving the academic achievement of students in urban public schools.
We address trends in education, including: growth and use of technology and broadband infrastructure, advances in the learning sciences, the societal drive toward personalization as an aspect of education innovation, and widespread dissatisfaction with the status quo. We do this by bringing together an uncommon alliance of students, teachers, designers, and technologists to participate in short cycle innovation to improve student achievement and solve challenges in education, particularly for low-income students.
