Cool things: Investment in Education

Through the global HP Innovations in Education initiative, HP is investing more than $20 million in schools and universities in 28 countries, according to a recent report

In my post last week "So how cool is HP's workplace?", I mentioned that HP's philanthropy, especially investments in education is one of the cool things I like about HP as a workplace.  This investment in schools is a great example of what I mean, you just get a sense of pride in your company when you see things like that.  The article also talked about schools that are deploying HP mini notebook PCs to K-12 students, which are ergo-friendly, and HP's support in combining that with innovative professional development classes for teachers.  Education of teachers and help in implementing and using the technology is one of the keys to success for technology in the classroom (see a related article here, "Ten Pillars of Successful Technology Implementation", highlighted in Education World.)

Other examples of HP's investment in education is through its people.  Several years ago I learned about Junior Achievement through a meeting at HP, and started volunteering.  Junior Achievement is a program where volunteers, often from the business community, teach students about business.  It's great to be able to contribute volunteer hours, and to be supported by the company in that effort.

In my "Cool Things:" series, I'll continue to highlight examples of the different areas I've mentioned.  Let me know via comments if you have any specific areas you want to know more about.
