Innovations for Learning is a nonprofit focused on improving literacy instruction in the primary grades.
Since 1993 we have pioneered applications for digital devices and one-to-one tutoring via the Internet—connecting teachers to a galaxy of resources to help students learn to read.

Our aim is to help teachers, not confuse them with new systems and devices.
In our commitment to school districts, we provide on-site coaches who assist the teacher throughout the year, integrating technology into the curriculum and leveraging technology for its maximum impact on teaching and learning.

We currently serve ten of the largest school districts in the country.
Our goal is continue to expand nationwide to serve millions of low income students at risk of reading failure.
The easy part is creating digital learning games that engage students. The hard part is integrating the games with the teachers’ curricula and methods, creating a seamless instructional system that teachers enthusiastically adopt.
Once teachers embrace technological change, substantial transformations are possible in the classroom, including connecting the teacher to the entire village that is needed to raise a child.
We provide philanthropic funders an opportunity to invest in changing the learning trajectory of at risk students by supporting proven programs that develop foundational literacy skills. Our goal is to efficiently leverage philanthropic capital to make a decisive impact on education outcomes, first throughout the country and then in the developing world.
Thousands of volunteers from major corporations, universities
and government agencies give
a half-hour a week to connect with
students remotely, via telephone
and computer, to provide crucial
supplemental help in reading,
spelling and word-building..
Teacher and student
Our approach is neither “student centric” nor “teacher centric.”
We view teaching and learning as a partnership between the teacher and each student.
We put both the teacher and student in the center of a wide array of resources that we provide through our innovative technology and programs.
