Digitizing schools

Changing the way 
teachers teach and 
the way students learn

Verizon Innovative Learning schools

Too many schools across America still lack the technology and resources to prepare students for a future in the digital world. But to make a real difference, it takes more than just technology. Lasting impact comes from, personalized, hands-on learning and experiences.

That’s why Verizon, through our partnership with Digital Promise, equips every child and teacher at select middle schools across America with a tablet and a two-year data plan.

In addition to free technology and access, Verizon Innovative Learning schools also receive extensive teacher training and support, and unique opportunities that engage students and open their eyes to new possibilities.
