Digital Promise

Technology is everywhere, but access is still limited for many learners across the country. Digital Promise—an initiative authorized by Congress in 2008—seeks to close this digital divide by working “at the intersection of education leaders, researchers, entrepreneurs, and developers to improve learning with the power of technology.”

Through the use of networks, stories, research, and engagement, Digital Promise strives to bring to life a new age of learning that allows “all people at every stage of their lives to have access to learning experiences that help them acquire the knowledge and skills they need to thrive and continuously learn in an ever-changing world.” Their vision leads to ideas, which lead to action. With initiatives like the League of Innovative Schools, Educator Micro-Credentials, and Education Innovation Clusters, Digital Promise focuses on including all education stakeholders in transforming the education landscape—bringing all learners, young and old, to the cutting edge of the future of learning. Explore their work and imagine where technology will take your learning environment five years from now.
