With 260 member organizations, Grantmakers for Education (GFE) is the nation's largest, most diverse network of education funders. In addition to growing its membership base, GFE aspires to aligning and coordinating efforts across funders through convenings and services. This grant would help support the development of a new and potentially powerful interactive data-visualization tool that will help funders build a shared understanding of funding flows in areas of education grantmaking. In addition, GFE will host an "Innovation 2.0" work session for grantmakers working in education innovation, with the aim of determining what compelling new strategies and investments must be made now to meet the needs of students in the radically-different learning environment of 2025.

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.
