The Dynamic Learning Project
This pilot is part of our commitment to help underserved communities deliver on the promise of technology, both in the classroom and after school. As tech continues to play an important and inevitable role in education, we want help more teachers and students benefit from it.
While technology on its own won’t fix or improve education, it can be a powerful tool in the hands of educators who know how to use it. But educators today - especially those at low-income schools - do not always have access to the training they need to help them learn how to use that technology in effective and meaningful ways.¹
To start, Google.org is providing a grant to Digital Promise to sponsor dedicated coaches at underserved schools.² We hope this pilot program will help inform the conversation about what schools need in order to successfully integrate technology in the classroom.
Full-time coaches at each school will provide personalized support to help educators in their community use technology in new and transformative ways.
The coach and their principal will work together to ensure this knowledge extends to their entire school as well as their broader community.
This pilot does not require any specific technology or tools, but instead aims to help educators get more out of whatever is available to them.

- 2 Digital Promise selected these schools based on need (measured by percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch), existing infrastructure, and innovative leadership committed to helping their teachers succeed. They will work with them throughout the year to support the coaches and principals. Learn more about this pilot program.
