Technology in classrooms isn't anything new.

But the way our teachers are using it is.

Every day, technology helps parents, teachers, schools, and students do what they do best. It's just one tool they can use—but it's a powerful one.​

About the Project

Every day, educators are using technology to engage students, involve parents, and enable great teaching in their classroom. At home, parents are using technology to support their children and stay in the loop. We know technology can't solve every problem, but it can support teachers, engage students, and empower parents.

The Smarter Schools Project was launched to highlight the exciting ways that schools and families are using technology to meet their needs. In the process, we hope to spark a conversation among parents, educators, and innovators about their hopes, concerns and goals for technology in education.
