This report draws together lessons from nine international examples of inspiring practice where technology is impacting on large numbers of teachers and students.

Education is our most powerful tool to improve and shape the lives of young people, but our education systems around the world face huge problems - from vastly unequal access or crises in teacher recruitment, to the growing costs of modernisation or stalling social mobility.

Technology - designed, used and implemented effectively - is providing an increasingly sophisticated set of tools to help us address them. We make recommendations for how governments, philanthropic foundations, technology companies and schools can support effective use of technology.
