Gates Foundation Offers $20 Million in Education Tech Grants

Bill Gates may not be the Superman everyone’s waiting for, but he regularly uses what powers he has in the service of education. In the latest episode, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced today it will put up as much as $20 million in funding for projects responding to the first in a series of Next Generation Learning Challenges. This set of grants will focus on supporting new technology that leverages online learning and interactivity to improve college readiness and graduation rates in the U.S. New sets of challenges will be issued every 6-12 months.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.
