The broad use of educational technology in our classrooms would not be possible without the help from School Passport. The GG4L dashboard allows us to focus on different application usage over differing periods of time to gauge level of usage by location.

Montgomery Public Schools has become involved with the Global Grid for Learning (GG4L) on multiple initiatives that are aimed toward school improvement. We are so grateful that GG4L has brought together solution providers and the funding to accomplish these important goals. School safety is our number one priority.

Millions of dollars are being spent each year by schools across the country on well-intentioned projects to address student safety and well-being, but to date there’s not been much research conducted on the outcomes of these projects. We hope that by joining this partnership, McREL can contribute to building a better evidence base that helps educators and parents make informed decisions about which approaches will work best for their students and schools.
Bryan GoodwinMcRel, President and CEO
We are proud to be a Sponsor of this strategic initiative toward the improved safety of our schools and the lives of children. I am also glad to see GG4L emerging as the low-barrier distribution enablement platform for cloud-hosted EdTech solutions into schools by inviting socially responsible corporations to participate in large-scale sustainable impact initiatives in education.
