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

Research and Evaluation

Transformation initiatives should start with validated research and well-defined tracking metrics. Once data has been collected, it can be used to further refine education offerings, creating a positive feedback loop for continuous improvement—and completing the circle of transformation.

Here's how Intel relies on intensive research and evaluation during program, product, and content development to ensure that education products and solutions support twenty-first century learning.

  • Planning. Intel® Education Solutions are based on ethnographic research in real classrooms around the world, as well as collaboration with education experts. Intel's team of ethnographic researchers conducts multiyear classroom studies. This research informs the design and development of Intel Education Solutions products.
  • Products. Intel® Education Tablets and Intel® classmate PCs are designed for a twenty-first century learning experience. They feature student-friendly rugged designs, tools to foster learning through exploration and content creation, and enhanced security to protect and manage devices. In addition, Intel® Education reference designs feature a software suite based on educational and technical evaluations.
  • Content. Intel Education programs, such as Intel® Teach, include content development based on current relevant research on effective teaching and learning. That's followed by evaluation strategies that collect formative data for program improvement, and then summative data to assess program impact.
  • Global collaboration. Intel works with government leaders, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), global alliances, public/private partnerships, and solution providers to develop and promote research-based approaches to education transformation.
