Our approach requires connected technology
Our theory of change is based on the central that the solution to learning poverty is Mastery Learner Identity. Children who not only see themselves as curious, confident, capable, and creative, but also produce evidence and receive feedback of the same, can never be learning poor.
Reading, math, social-emotional competencies, digital literacy, and more will come when children live in homes and attend classrooms that place them at the center of a Personalized Mastery Learning Ecosystem™. A learning environment that blends applied learning science and adaptive learning technology to enable teachers, families, and administrators to focus on each student’s individual learning needs to accelerate literacy and numeracy achievement.
The creation of a Personalized Mastery Learning Ecosystem for each child begins with the introduction of Internet-connected technology into classroom and homes.
Our Mastery Learning Program therefore has certain minimum technology requirements.
Consistent electricity is required during learning hours, sufficient to power desktop devices, and recharge mobile devices.

Responding to technology constraints
It is primarily the responsibility of partner countries to ensure that schools and classrooms are equipped with the infrastructure and technology they need.
However, education systems in low- and lower-middle-income countries may experience gaps and limitations in their ability to provide electricity, connectivity, and devices for all learners.
In such cases, the parties and stakeholders involved in the Mastery Learning Program will endeavor to collaborate in identifying initiatives, interventions, partnerships, service providers, or funding sources that may help to close the digital divide for schools and homes that do not meet minimum technology requirements.
