Public Impact is the national leader in combining teachers and technology for results that can be scaled.
Technology can give all students, regardless of where they live, access to excellent teachers—but changes must be made wisely.
Public Impact helps district and charter schools plan and incorporate digital instruction, remote teaching and tutoring, and data dashboards to achieve better outcomes. Our work helps schools ensure that innovation and personalization are combined with high standards for teaching and student learning, so that different is also better. We have unique experience forging school designs that free teachers’ time for on-the-job planning, learning, and leadership while making personalized, differentiated learning for students easier to implement.
We continually generate new ideas based on data and field observation to further close achievement gaps and elevate prospects for all children, and elevate the education profession so everyone can experience excellent instruction, support, and career opportunities.
