In February, Stevenson appeared before the Charlotte City Council and Mecklenburg County commissioners to applaud CMPD offering a Citizen’s Academy, which educates participants on police policies, training and methods. A leading catalyst for progress, Educate Texas, a public-private initiative of Communities Foundation of Texas, is an innovative alliance of public and private groups that share a common goal: strengthening the public education system so that every Texas student is prepared for success in school, in the workforce, and in life. The next cohort of Educate U.S. students will travel to Houston, Texas in January 2018.
Through this collaboration EDUCATE will translate research investment into new and better Educational Technology, stimulate demand for educational products, enable researchers to commercialise their research and increase the R & D investment made by SMEs. So, it is good to be prepared, and have clear, concise reasoning for your decision to home educate the kids.
In this payment-by-results model, CIFF (as an outcome payer) promises to pay back the investor UBSOF the original investment amount plus extra returns as long as the agreed targets are delivered by Educate Girls (the service provider). Most of the children who have been educated by ETO are now fully employed, some of them as teachers, pastors, dressmakers, shoemakers, etc, some even working for ETO. The EDUCATE project team will set up a co-working space at the UCL Knowledge Lab (LKL).
To compliment the EDUCATE research resources a set of basic business resources will also be collated and made available through the EDUCATE portal. In the end, not only will Educate Tanzania work to alleviate physical poverty, but to banish a poverty of spirit. Showcase event: Each year EDUCATE will showcase the SMEs/researcher start-ups who are and have been its members.
The Education Foundation and EdTech UK’s work will contribute to the promotion of EDUCATE with its existing network, will bring its network of experienced mentors to directly support the SMEs and researchers on the programme, have its key staff directly support start-ups in the knowledge lab space, run networking and showcase events, run EdTech specific workshops and represent and share lessons learned from the project to policy and wider industry stakeholders.
