About Us

about_us

PowerMyLearning is a national non-profit organization committed to ensuring that all children are able to power their learning through a combination of technology and the people who matter most to their success – parents and teachers. Our mission is to help students in low-income communities, together with their teachers and families, harness the power of digital learning to improve educational outcomes. Learn more about our vision and principles.

For decades technology has not delivered on its promise of transforming education. Why? Because technology is often being used to replace the people who matter most to a student’s learning – their teachers or their parents/guardians. At PowerMyLearning, we take a different approach. We focus on using technology not to replace anyone, but rather to enhance the key interactions among teachers, parents, and students. When the key interactions are properly supported, they propel the two cycles that are most critical for student learning: the Personalized Instruction cycle and the Student-Driven Learning cycle. Learn more about our approach and cycles of learning.

Our work has demonstrated impact on student achievement and love of learning; teacher instructional practices; and parental confidence. PowerMyLearning partner schools show greater improvement in academic proficiency compared to schools with similar profiles. Learn more about our impact.

Founded in 1999, PowerMyLearning has a strong leadership team with deep experience in teacher professional development, family engagement, and education technology. With the dedicated commitment of our national and regional boards and our supporters, PowerMyLearning is a recognized leader in the use of digital learning to improve educational outcomes.
