Verizon and Digital Promise Team Up to Help Transofrm Education
With about 9 million available STEM jobs – and over 4 million available jobs in science and technology alone – our youth need access to education and resources that will prepare them for success in tomorrow’s high-tech world.
Verizon is addressing this issue through an initiative called Verizon Innovative Learning that provides free technology, free access and immersive, hands-on learning to students and teachers in underserved communities across America. Verizon Innovative Learning develops STEM education programs from the ground up.
Verizon funds these programs and also creates and administers them in partnership with Digital Promise. We diligently measure the impact of our efforts in this area and refine our programs to ensure we’re making a difference.
At Verizon Innovative Learning schools, students make unique connect that engage them and opens their eyes to new possibilities.
Digital Promise focuses on improving the opportunity to learn and identifying all the ways that the power of technology and research can best support teachers and students. In short, we are working to close the Digital Learning Gap. Our primary goal with this project is to support the work of courageous and innovative leaders, educators, and students as they design and implement innovative, technology-enabled learning environments.
