About this grant

This grant will support Wireless Generation to develop ThirdSpace 2.0, the next edition of ThirdSpace, which was created to connect in-school and out-of-school educators. Building on the evaluation of the original ThirdSpace pilot, the grantee will develop ThirdSpace 2.0 to: 1) ensure the system is more user friendly for a wider audience; 2) increase the security and student privacy of the technology; 3) enhance the student assessment component; and 4) support new training options for educators. This project will result in a technology tool that is easier to use, adaptable to a variety of schools and programs, and scalable to support student learning and collaborative instruction to help students achieve success in school and in life.
