This R&D program advances the foundation’s interest in promoting high-quality, standards-aligned OER that develops deeper into learning competencies for personal, social, and civic success in the digital age. The goal is to offer the most innovative resources possible to support students in the midst of new and sometimes pernicious issues – hate speech, fake news, and privacy concerns.

for analysis of the technology requirements of online testing and their relationship to E-Rate
Common Sense Media (CSM) is a nonpartisan non-profit providing information, tools, and a forum for families about the media they consume. CSM supported a larger effort (called the LEAD Commission) which was charged with developing a blueprint for the expansion of education technology, including a review of the E-Rate. With this funding, CSM would engage a coalition of nonprofits to help promote the LEAD Commission’s recommendations for using technology in schools. The work will focus on meeting the technology demands of online testing and enabling schools to assess students on deeper learning—a key priority of our strategy.
