Addressing diverse learning needs

Many teachers face the daunting challenge of addressing hugely diverse learning needs. In classrooms everywhere, a multi-year knowledge gap separates the highest and lowest attaining students.

Combined with increasing class sizes and highly varied levels of teacher training and expertise, the promise of a quality education, personalised for each student, remains unfulfilled. Education systems are in desperate need of innovation.

Quality education for all

An education partner accountable for learning outcomes

The world's governments and education stakeholders are facing enormous pressure to provide inclusive, accessible and quality education for all students. The education sector needs solutions that are innovative and proven at scale.

For the first time in history, we have the tools to meet this challenge. But technology is no silver bullet, and billions have been squandered on solutions that neglect the realities faced by schools. We need holistic solutions that bring education technology and policy in harmony with the realities of learning and teaching.

We work with multiple stakeholders, from parents and schools to ministries and development agencies, in pursuit of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a specific focus on SDG 4: ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all, SDG 5: equal access to education for women and girls and SDG 17: supporting partnerships between government, private sector and civil society that work towards a shared and sustainable development agenda.
