World Bank collaborates with 11,000 teachers, T4 Education to provide internet access to schools in India, abroad

Central Square Foundation has joined the World Bank, T4 Education and more than 11,000 teachers from India and around the world to call on governments, the international community and technology companies to work together to ensure that every school in India and around the world has reliable internet access and enough devices to bring educational technology (EdTech) into every classroom to close global learning gaps.

The communiqué, issued after the Teacher Tech Summit 2022, also called for EdTech to design in partnership with teachers and use it to reduce educational inequality. It is signed by leading organizations including Podar Education, Cambridge Partnership for Education, Scholastic, the Lemann Foundation, Save the Children and Owl Ventures.

Communiqué from the Teacher Tech Summit Recognizes that EdTech has the tremendous potential to close the global learning gaps exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and contribute significantly to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) to “provide inclusive and equitable quality education guarantee and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”

However, the signatories believe that unless governments, the international community, technology companies, innovators and educators reduce inequalities in access, comprehensive EdTech strategies should be rolled out, teachers should be involved in EdTech design processes, teachers should be trained to use technology effectively. to make sure EdTech works to improve learning outcomes and break down barriers for girls using EdTech, we risk seeing those inequalities grow.
