The Global Grid for Learning

A Collaborative Social Impact Platform for K-12 Education

The Global Grid for Learning is a membership based, K-12 Collaborative of Schools, Technology Vendors and Corporate Sponsors who advocate open industry standards, compliance with student data privacy regulations and the use of industry best practices as they participate in GG4L Impact Initiatives to deploy innovative, managed school improvement programs.


Schools and districts, anywhere in the world, are invited to join GG4L for free for life. We do not charge schools and districts for any of our core platform services.


To sustain its no-cost-to-schools platform and services, GG4L offers sponsorship opportunities to the institutional private sector, e.g. corporations and foundations, who may cost-effectively extend their impact reach in K-12 education under this new model. Sponsors support a myriad of managed impact initiatives that align with their social impact goals, e.g. STEM, School Safety, Community Engagement, and several others.
