250 million kids around the world can’t read, write, or do basic math...

. . . despite the fact that the vast majority of these children are in school. TabLab is a two-year program for transforming rural schools that combines the power of local teacher trainers, curriculum, and tablet technology. Our mission is to partner with K-12 rural schools to transform teaching and learning. Once accepted into TabLab, rural schools receive a teacher trainer for two years, access to TabLab’s professional development curriculum, and a mobile tablet lab. Our iPad labs are a fraction of the cost of a traditional computer lab and work both offline and off the grid. Our vision is to create a global network of TabLab schools that revolutionizes rural education.
