Technology-Enabled Opportunities 

The Internet has transformed how Americans seek and find educational and workplace opportunities. For two decades, The Children's Partnership has helped shape how children, parents, schools, and communities can use computing devices and the Internet to generate safe opportunities. We also work to ensure that technology-enabled opportunities extend to all young people, particularly those in underserved families and communities. Current projects include:

>> Can Game Companies Help America's Children?
Research into the demographics and trends in digital games with the conclusion that game companies should be giving back to kids and families

>> VirtuallyGood4Kids 
A cause partnership developed to engage game companies and get kids off to a healthy, strong start in life.

>> Digital Opportunity Issue Briefs
A series of topical issue briefs describing how digital technology can benefit families.

>> School2Home 
A technology integration program implemented at low-performing middle schools in California, with a strong emphasis on parental involvement.
