Sharing research, building communities

Making education work better isn't just about improving access, but also focusing on progress. In other words, we need to understand what sort of teaching and learning works well, and what doesn't. We contribute to this effort with our own research, and by making the things we find out available to everyone. Here are some of the examples of that:

The Efficacy Framework

The Efficacy Framework

We have built a process to measure the effectiveness of educational products. We call it The Efficacy Framework, and we have made it available for everyone to use.

Guess how many people in the world can't read or write adequately? Some? A lot? try 781 million. Much is already being done to combat illiteracy, but not enough. So we've decided to take a lead - because we can, and because we should.
