A description of ThinkFinity from the president of the Verizon Foundation:
It is with great pleasure that we announce the creation of Thinkfinity, the Verizon Foundation’s signature digital learning platform designed to improve educational and literacy achievement.
Thinkfinity is built upon the foundation’s flagship education program, Verizon MarcoPolo, and the foundation’s comprehensive online resource for literacy, the Thinkfinity Literacy Network.
Thinkfinity reflects the Verizon Foundation’s goal of truly making a difference in the lives of students, teachers, families and the communities in which they live and work. We are doing this by supporting quality educational resources and programs that enable lifelong learning and growth. We are fortunate that our Content and Literacy Partners in this endeavor are the premier organizations in seven K-12 academic subjects and in literacy instruction, along with outstanding organizations and institutions across the country that serve as Rollout Partners to take Thinkfinity into schools, literacy programs and communities nationwide. Through our collaboration and work, we deliver the highest quality, standards-based and research-based educational and literacy resources to teachers, instructors and students.
Thinkfinity will continue to grow in the coming months and years. This growth will be directed through the shared vision of the Verizon Foundation and its partners to extend the reach and impact of Thinkfinity beyond traditional classroom and instructional settings. In order to support lifelong learning, we will provide resources for after-school, parent and community organization audiences, make content available on new technology platforms and enhance professional development.
Thinkfinity means “endless possibilities for learning.” Our goal and our mission are to support the present and future needs of our global society, and, through Thinkfinity, deliver resources to advance the knowledge and skills that are required of citizens in the 21st century.
