Advancing digital equity and enabling all people to thrive in our digital world
The EdTech Center (ETC) @ World Education advances digital equity to enable everyone to thrive as learners, workers, family and community members in today’s increasingly tech-enabled world. We support organizations and communities to leverage technology to increase the reach and impact of education and other humanitarian initiatives, and enable greater socioeconomic mobility for all. Equity, inclusion, integrity, collaboration, responsiveness, quality, and respect for the experience and knowledge of people and communities we work with.
Launched in 2015 as a center of expertise @ World Education, we are one of few centers promoting learning exchange, inclusive innovation, and partnership between edtech leaders in the United States and international experts through several initiatives including our EdTech Impact Advisory Group, the collective impact coalition Digital US and our open education initiative, CrowdEd Learning.
Founded in 1951, World Education is dedicated to improving people’s lives around the world through education and social and economic development. Our programs promote individual and collective change and include improving education, helping displaced peoples, stemming the tide of HIV, and reducing violence through conflict resolution. With headquarters in Boston, MA, USA, World Education shares office space, leadership, and many staff with its sister organization JSI (John Snow, Inc.).
The EdTech Center collaborates with a range of private and public institutions worldwide to build the capacity of international education.
