Technology can create richer learning environments and improve learning outcomes, but not all students are equally benefiting from these advances.
To help more children reach their full potential, Google.org is supporting Learning Equality, a nonprofit organization building educational software for communities with low internet connectivity. Its work in Sacatepéquez, Guatemala, is giving more children a chance to get a better education.
It's all part of Google.org's global education initiative which is investing $50 million over the next two years to support nonprofits who are building tech-based learning solutions.
