InnovateEDU a Brooklyn-based non-profit whose mission is to eliminate the achievement gap by accelerating innovation in Common Core-aligned, next generation learning models and tools that serve, inform, and enhance teaching and learning. InnovateEDU convenes students, teachers, entrepreneurs, and designers to re-imagine and reinvent education by putting the needs of students and teachers at the heart of design.
InnovateEDU is committed to massively disrupting K-12 public education by focusing on the development of scalable tools and practices that leverage innovation, technology, and new human capital systems to improve education for all students and close the achievement gap.
We address trends in education, including: growth and use of technology and broadband infrastructure, advances in the learning sciences, the societal drive toward personalization as an aspect of education innovation, and widespread dissatisfaction with the status quo. We do this by bringing together an uncommon alliance of students, teachers, designers, and technologists to participate in short cycle innovation to improve student achievement and solve challenges in education, particularly for low-income students.
