Keeping steadfast with SVEF’s vision “to transform Silicon Valley into a model for enhancing education,” the Learning Innovation Hub (iHub) connects Education Technology (EdTech) entrepreneurs, educators, and researchers to facilitate collaboration and product feedback for optimal decisions to integrate technology tools and solutions for our classrooms.
Through our work with districts and PwC, we conduct Edtech Assessments to determine the level of technology that is currently incorporated into the classroom and throughout the district. These assessments lead to a strengthened vision and strategy for integrating technology at the local district level.
Connecting EdTech and educators is one of SVEF’s central tenants. In partnership with Google, iHub provides educators with the opportunity to integrate dynamic education technology into their classrooms to help their students achieve success.
SVEF has partnered with Code.org to help identify computer science needs in San Mateo and Santa Clara County school districts. iHub and Code.org work together, using advocacy, curriculum development, and professionally focused learning to prepare students for the needs of an increasingly tech-focused workforce.
