Education Powers Up! Did you know that online education could reach 14 million students in 2014? Find out how students in Africa are learning math via SMS, why first graders in Estonia are learning to code, and who is paying U.S. students to drop out of Ivy League schools. Designed to filter the social media conversation, FLTR focuses on one topic during one moment of time. This month we look at education, specifically how technology fuels access and is fundamentally redefining the way education is being created, delivered and paid for.
