Close digital divides and enhance connectivity for education

The Age of Learning Foundation proposes to address educational inequities associated with digital divides in these ways, all at no cost:

• Provide free access to our educational apps and content on a broad range of platforms—Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, computers, digital video platforms, and traditional TV broadcasting.
• Preload our programs on devices being provided to underserved communities by other Coalition partners.
• Offer content and apps that do not require continuous internet connectivity
• Provide content for supporting print materials to enable children to continue to make progress when digital connections aren’t available

The Age of Learning Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by education technology company Age of Learning, Inc., and chaired by Doug Dohring, is dedicated to fundamentally improving the education of children in low and lower-middle-income countries. Partnering with governments and NGOs, we help families and educators ensure that underserved children age 3-12 improve academic skills in a measurable way through highly scalable, sustainable digital learning programs.

Our programs include ABCmouse Early Learning Academy, a leading, comprehensive digital curriculum for children ages 2 through 8, with more than 10,000 engaging learning activities. Research-proven and used by tens of millions of children to date, ABCmouse helps young learners build key skills in language, literacy, math, science, art, music, and more. Other programs include ReadingIQ, a world-class digital library and literacy platform with thousands of high-value books, and a patented personalized, adaptive digital math and literacy learning system powered by AI-driven technology.

The Age of Learning Foundation provides these digital learning programs at no cost, as well as training and support expertise for teacher training, family engagement, and community outreach. Each partnership also includes a research and evaluation component to evaluate and continuously improve the impact and scalability of deployed programs.
