Connect To Learn deployments
Connect to Learn is a public-private partnership with the purpose to increase access to quality education, especially for girls, through life skills programs and the integration of technology tools and digital learning resources in schools.
Connect To Learn is a global education initiative launched in 2010 by the Earth Institute of Columbia University, Millennium Promise and Ericsson. Ericsson provides cloud-based MBB infrastructure; the Earth Institute at Columbia University does the monitoring and evaluation, as well as providing access to cutting-edge research on education (including monitoring and evaluation frameworks); and Millennium Promise (MP) helps operationalize the research in under-resourced schools and local communities.
Our Connect to Learn strategy has evolved over the years and become more robust through the incorporation of field-based lessons. We tailor the interventions to the needs of specific groups of children. Explore our cases.
