Taking responsibility for our shared future means ensuring the benefits of technology are available to all. Right now, millions of students here in the U.S. are lacking the connectivity, technology and skills required for success in today’s digital economy. That’s why we’ve been working to help foster digital inclusion through a transformative education program called Verizon Innovative Learning. It’s a key part of our goal to help move the world forward for all through our Citizen Verizon plan.
Project Lead The Way provides a transformative learning experience for PreK-12 students and teachers across the U.S. and empowers students to develop in-demand, transportable knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in our rapidly evolving world. Since 2014, Verizon Innovative Learning has partnered with PLTW to ensure students have access to the Computer Science curriculum and skills they need to succeed. Through this partnership, tens of thousands of students have had the opportunity to develop in-demand computer science knowledge and skills that will serve them on any future educational and career paths they take. Today, with Verizon’s support of the STEM Activity Center, more teachers and students will have access to free online interactive STEM activities like coding, augmented reality, and 3D design.
Students can’t be what they can’t see. With partnerships like the one between PLTW and Verizon, more students can have access to hands-on activities, projects, and problems; and empowered to solve tomorrow’s challenges, through new and innovative experiences.
