Leveraging the Education Potential of Technology

Over the next three years, Verizon will invest up to $100 million in our education work to ensure that more students – particularly those in underserved communities – benefit from technology enabled education and digital learning.

We've seen how ongoing teacher training and technology in the classroom can affect a teacher's ability to teach and a student's passion for learning. Find out more about our exciting expansion and explore these success stories.

School is a lot different today than it was two years ago at P.S. 171, Patrick Henry Preparatory Academy in Harlem, NY. In 2016, when teachers wanted students to use computers in class, they rolled in the computer cart. Students lined up, took the laptops from the cart and brought them back to their seats. At the end of class, students lined up again to put the laptops back in the cart so they could be rolled over to the next classroom.
