Enabling access to education
We're committed to improving educational opportunities for children and youth around the world through technology. This investment is essential for increasing access to quality education and developing the digital skills of our future workforce. The Connect To Learn initiative has reached over 400,000 students located across 36 countries to date.
Connect to Learn is Ericsson’s flagship education program. Its purpose is to empower teachers, students and schools to deliver a quality 21st-century education and provide young people worldwide with digital skills. The program has four focus areas: access to digital connectivity for schools, girls in ICT, education in humanitarian contexts and youth empowerment through digital skills.
Working with key partners, Ericsson provides access to an extensive portfolio of existing solutions as well as developing specific education-related solutions. Examples include connectivity for schools, child-friendly ICT environments, virtual reality learning, and introducing children to new technologies.
Since 2010, Ericsson has worked with partners on key ICT in education projects around the world. Here is a selection of projects ranging from the use of technology to improve the quality of education in schools in rural Africa to teaching digital skills such as robotics and artificial intelligence to teenagers in Sweden.
