Helping expand learning for everyone
We believe that everyone – educators and learners at every age and stage – deserve the tools and skills that set them up for success in building the future they want for themselves.
'Technology alone will not improve education, but it can be a powerful part of the solution.'Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google
We invest in projects and organisations that expand access to learning
Through Google.org, we've committed more than $250 million since 2005 to tackle global education gaps, while empowering Googlers to volunteer their technical expertise. Our goal is to help more people – especially those in underserved communities – benefit from the promise of technology, in the classroom and beyond.
Supporting underserved schools and communities
Bridging the digital divide will require more than devices and connectivity. We must also equip teachers with the skills, tools and the training they need to use that technology effectively in the classroom.
That’s why we launched the Dynamic Learning Project – a pilot that’s part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that the benefits of technology reach every classroom. The programme supports high-need districts as they launch and grow technology coaching programmes. Through the Dynamic Learning Project model, coaches work alongside educators to help them identify and implement innovative technology practices in their classrooms.
Turning bus time into learning time
While schoolwork increasingly requires access to the Internet, millions of students still lack connectivity at home.
We’re working with districts across the US to expand Rolling Study Halls to help thousands of students in rural communities access more learning hours outside of school by powering their school buses with Wi-Fi, devices and onboard educator support.
Helping equip the next generation with future skills
More than 65% of learners will work in jobs that don’t even exist today,¹ but many aren’t yet developing the problem-solving skills and basic digital competencies that they’ll need to be prepared for that future.
We are providing grant funding to nonprofits, building programmes to expand access to computer science education and helping train more female and under-represented students in computational thinking. It’s our goal to prepare every learner with the adaptive skills that they need to tackle the future's biggest challenges.
