An additional $25 million invested regionally to Remake Learning
In response to a call to action issued in January 2016, over 100 organizations in the Remake Learning Network have made more than 150 commitments to accelerate relevant, hands-on, personalized learning over the next twelve months. These commitments include $25 million+ in investments from philanthropies, businesses, and governments to support 21st century learning across southwest Pennsylvania and West Virginia. These investments build on more than $30 million in support during the past decade to advance teaching and learning across the Pittsburgh region. They also include announcements of expanded programmatic efforts that are slated to impact more than 400,000 kids and nearly 20,000 educators in the next 12 months in this region alone.
Key commitments were announced in front of more than 150 national and local dignitaries and leaders in the Remake Learning community—including representatives from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Silicon Valley Makers, and members of the League of Innovative Schools— on May 9, 2016 at Google Pittsburgh. These commitments ensure that learners will have even more opportunities in the coming year to engage in exciting new ways of learning, both during the school day as well as in informal learning settings, online, and at home.
