Education Transformation


A Holistic Model for Success

At Intel, we've invested over $1 billion to improve teaching and learning environments in more than 70 countries over the last decade. Through our systematic approach to student success, we deliver fresh insights, unique programs, and holistic solutions to help educators, government officials, IT professionals, and other leaders inspire excellence in students.

Essential components of education transformation


Solid policies ensure that all students obtain the skills necessary to succeed in a knowledge-based economy and society. The best policies promote economic and social development and innovation, and are of key importance for governments to remain globally competitive.

Policy framework

Your policy framework should identify the changes needed to align curriculum, assessment, professional development, teaching practices, learning practices, and technology—so they're all working together to support your transformation objectives. For example, you might redefine a "textbook" to include digital resources. You might also expand the definition of a "course" so that students can take advantage of virtual learning and teachers can benefit from flexible online courseware for professional development.

Practical policies should protect students and maintain data privacy, while optimizing the use of technology as a platform for teaching and learning. Sample policy elements may include:

  • Definitions of digital citizenship to identify appropriate ethical and legal behavior when using technology
  • Assistive technology policies that help people with disabilities perform tasks that they otherwise wouldn't be able to accomplish (or perform tasks more easily)
  • Universal design for learning (UDL) guidance to curriculum that reduces physical, cognitive, and other obstacles to learning
  • Acceptable-use policies for students, educators, and parents, reflecting the norms of the community while addressing the realities of the twenty-first century
Developing transformative policies

Developing transformative policies

In education, transformative policy aligns entire systems. It's action-oriented, scalable, and includes financial resources to sustain it. Get a fuller understanding of how information communications technology (ICT) supports effective education policies by connecting curriculum, assessment, teacher professional development, research, evaluation, and more.
