In partnership with Verizon, we have equipped every child and teacher in select low-income middle schools across America with a tablet and two-year data plan as well as extensive professional learning opportunities for teachers and school leaders. Each Verizon Innovative Learning school receives a stipend for a Learning Coach to assist with program implementation, teaching support, and collaborative learning.
A third of lower income households with children don’t have access to high-speed internet at home. This inequality only furthers the homework gap and can put low income students at a learning disadvantage. By giving students access to content, resources, and expertise in and out of school, we help underserved students develop the tools and confidence they need to become tomorrow’s innovators.
