Rapid changes in technology affect how and what we learn. Without adaptable skills, more and more people risk being left behind by digital transformation. We support research, platforms, and programs that offer everyone the skills, tools, and opportunities they need to continue learning and adapting, and that are open, accessible, and innovative.
Grantmaking in each of our interest areas is guided by a central framing question. Our aim is for our portfolio of grantees to drive answers to these guiding questions in the aggregate.
How does the structure, content, and pedagogy of the education system need to change in order to best equip learners to contribute to and advance society?
Promote "purposeful creativity"
We believe that the best advancements in learning, technology, and education are research-backed, and drive learners towards meaningful creation in a way that can apply across disciplines.
Broaden access to future-relevant skills
Ensuring that everyone can participate meaningfully in a digital economy will require expanding access to and ways of learning about the technologies that will be the biggest drivers of change.
Build platforms and participation for open knowledge
Expanding access to knowledge and toolsets will be advanced by organizations and leaders who recognize the importance of openness, sharing, and collaboration.
