Working together to transform education
Technology is a powerful tool for improving the quality of education. The Intel Education Service Corps (IESC) works closely with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in developing countries to deploy technology solutions based on Intel® Education Solutions purpose-built platforms. Since 2009, IESC teams have worked in 11 countries to set up more than 1,200 Intel classmate PCs, training thousands of teachers and students to effectively use technology.
About the program
From solar-powered schools in Zambia to rural orphanages in Vietnam, IESC teams work with NGOs to define education technology solutions that meet their needs and to prepare rigorous plans for deployment, training and long-term sustainability. Contact Intel to discuss your education technology needs and to request an IESC team for your project.
The power of teamwork
Intel selects high-achieving employees for IESC assignments, which combine customer service and employee skills development with a dose of adventure. Teams spend at least one month preparing for their assignments and two weeks in the field implementing solutions. Volunteers are selected for their technical and training abilities, in addition to cross-cultural fluency and a passion for education.
It was an educator’s dream to watch the Intel team at work.
