10. Support for Summit Public Schools
In September 2015, Facebook announced its intention to support Summit Public Schools, a nonprofit organization that helps public schools reform and revamp their system for better education. Facebook didn’t reveal exactly how much money it was spending on the project, but the results of the partnership are impressive. Last year, Summit Public Schools introduced new software, the Facebook-Summit learning management system, which helps students collaborate with each other, manage project timelines and create customizable lesson modules. The main idea behind this software is to give students more control over their performance instead of the conventional, teacher-driven education dynamics.
