Intel Teach Worldwide

Intel, an American multinational technology corporation, has shown its sustained commitment to improving education, teaching, and learning through the implementation of a project known as Intel Teach Program, through the Intel Education Initiative. Focused on empowering students of all ages and providing them with the necessary skills to succeed, this project strives to improve “teacher effectiveness through professional development, [help] teachers integrate technology into their lessons and [promote] students’ problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skills”. Intel Teach Worldwide has been the most successful program of its kind and is evidence of the positive educational outcomes efficient use of technology can have.

Since the launch of the pilot program in Pakistan in 2001, Intel has partnered with private and public international organizations, governments, and educators in over 70 countries and has trained over 10 million teachers, in 35 different languages. Intel spends roughly 100 million dollars in education programs annually, and volunteers hundreds of thousands of hours of invaluable work, to promote its cause  on local, national, and international levels.
