Noting that “quality teachers equal quality education,” Intel Chairman Craig Barrett emphasized that this training – a new online offering of the Intel Teach Program – helps teachers create active learning environments to help students develop the skills they need to succeed in the global economy. Students taught by teachers trained through the traditional Intel Teach Program have used these skills for everything from developing an AIDS awareness program to finding new sources of potable water. The current market value of the commitment announced today is an estimated $300 million over the next 4 years.
Recognizing Intel’s commitment to improving the quality of education worldwide, Clinton named Barrett to CGI’s Education Advisory Committee. Barrett is the first private-sector partner to receive this honor.
