The Transforming Learning Accelerator will create a sustainable model for advancing science, pursuing innovative designs, and turning discoveries into scalable and equitable solutions.



Currently, we are supporting a dozen research and design projects focused on challenges facing children and young adults during COVID-19. The projects tackle challenges within our five initial areas of concentration: digital learning, early childhood, learning differences, underserved learners, and workforce learners.
