Teachers & Lenovo

Education is a critical building block to a vibrant future and teachers live on the front lines of that effort. Here are a few things we are doing for extra credit in the education world.


Lenovo Future Academy

Young people everywhere are growing up in a world marked by innovation and change. We asked students to give us their ideas on what the future of education looks like. The top 10 stories were selected and animated by professional studios, culminating in a nationwide competition in which the winning school received a $25,000 technology update grand prize. Follow the link to see the amazing stories that students of all ages from all over the country developed. And while the competition has come to a close, let us know what YOU think the future of education will look like on Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #LenovoTravelingStorybook.


The Lenovo Foundation

Lenovo Foundation empowers diverse and underrepresented populations with access to technology and STEM education. This mission is accomplished through strategic giving to aligned charitable partners, global employee volunteerism, and ensuring access to technology in times of disaster. By partnering with strategically aligned charitable organizations and engaging Lenovo's global employee base, Lenovo shares its strengths of innovation and diversity to make a difference in communities around the world through the work of Lenovo Foundation.


Future of Education

Education across the globe is in a constant state of flux. As technology in schools continues to evolve, so too do the teaching methods of past and present. And that’s not a bad thing! Advances in web conferencing, educational software, and more has opened the door for thousands of prospective students to grow through distance learning and online classes – those who otherwise may not have had the time or ability to regularly travel to a physical location. Plus, enhancements within the classroom help foster new and innovative teaching methods that help teachers further guide and engage with students.

Teachers and Students Leading the Way

At Lenovo, we’re looking to the experts to point us in the right direction. We’re constantly engaging with students and teachers to understand their hopes and needs for the future of education. In one such case, the Lenovo Future Academy asked students to show us their vision of the future of education, and the winner received a $25,000 technology update grand prize.

Giving Back to Education Charities

With support from the Lenovo Foundation, Lenovo is also strategically pursuing charitable endeavors to take some of the load off hard-working instructors across the globe by dispatching Lenovo employees to lend helping hands where needed. Also, our education donation efforts have led to hundreds of products being placed in the hands of students and educational organizations in need, leaving less students and teachers disconnected from one another.
