Grantmakers for Education is a voluntary, national consortium for educational philanthropists comprised of nearly 300 member institutions sharing information and insights. The organization regularly hosts a professional development institute in partnership with Harvard University, for which it will develop a case study of foundation leverage, influence, and collaboration in rethinking state education accountability systems. Researching and explaining exemplar accountability reforms—from new purposes and processes to policy implementation—increases grantmaker capacity in the context of decentralization and advances an important and ongoing national discussion on establishing and measuring deeper learning outcomes.

This request would support Grantmakers for Education's (GFE) plan to hold a member briefing examining technology’s potential to customize learning for all. This will be the fourth in GFE’s Innovation Series, and will explore how education grantmakers can be catalysts for efforts by teachers, gamers, robotists, artists, designers, and child development experts to make innovative use of child-centered arts, media, and technology to enhance teaching and learning by provoking curiosity and inspiring play for all learners.
