Enabling breakthroughs for students worldwide.
Here are some of the ways we’re influencing the future of education.
With smarter devices come smarter students.
From smartphones, to tablets, to laptops, Qualcomm is leveling the playing field by putting smart devices in the hands of countless students so they can access their learning materials, peers and teachers 24/7.
Access for all.
On average, 30% of US homes don't have access to high speed internet. Qualcomm is ensuring that we live in a future where that number is much smaller by enabling affordable LTE data plans that only enable school-approved activities.
We're making connectivity easy, because teaching is hard enough.
Streamlining connectivity both on and off campus without unnecessarily burdening IT staff is the key to making seamless and always-available connectivity a reality for students across the globe.
Ensuring smart devices are tools first, and toys second.
By working directly with device manufacturers, Qualcomm Education is keeping students focused and more secure with embedded on-device security that is controlled by schools — enabling access to only school-approved content and connectivity.
Make any lesson out of this world.
Whether it’s at zoos, museums, or in the classroom, Qualcomm Education is helping students and teachers leverage smart device capabilities, like augmented reality, to facilitate student experiences that are more interactive, personal and engaging.
Education tailored for today’s students : The Qualcomm® QLearn™ Mobile Education Platform.
How do you reach and teach students raised on technology? Easy — by connecting and engaging them with mobile-first tools and 24/7 access via QLearn. Designed to be device agnostic, QLearn extends the reach of schools with easy-to-navigate pathways to all course materials, assessments, and communications between teachers and classmates.
Bringing lessons to life: the Thinkabit Lab.
Teach a student and they’ll remember. Get them involved and true learning starts to happen. That’s the philosophy behind our Thinkabit Lab — a hands-on lab for middle school students created to stimulate interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) careers. With fewer and fewer U.S. students pursuing STEM careers in comparison to the rest of the world, The Thinkabit Lab is inspiring a whole new era of American visionaries by bringing a wide range of lessons to life.
We believe that the value of education is something that’s universal. That’s why we’re committed to serving a diverse spectrum of initiatives to impact education on a global scale.
See how we’re shaping the future, today.
Massive Open Online Learning
Making education more accessible.
Making higher education resources readily available is one of the most important steps we can take toward changing the world for the better. That’s why Qualcomm Education is working with with edX, a leading provider of MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) from the world’s best universities, colleges and organizations.
Together, Qualcomm Education and edX seek to provide a richer learning experience by making educational content more easily accessible and mobile-centric — all so students can be more engaged and successful on their learning pathways.
K-12 / STEM Education
K-12 STEM Education & Awareness
Science, technology, engineering and math (and arts)—known collectively as STEM—is essential to meeting many of the world’s most pressing challenges both today, and in the future.
Whether it's through helping women discover and prepare for STEM Careers or sparking STEM passion through FIRST Robotics, Qualcomm is working to promote and improve STEM education at all levels to expand opportunities and inspire a new generation of underrepresented students.
Educating underserved communities globally.
As the world becomes a more connected place, Education becomes an even more powerful driver towards economic development and advancement of underserved regions.
That’s why Qualcomm Wireless Reach™ is striving to find new ways to educate children in these regions through the incredible reach of smart devices—all so we can put life-changing educational material in the hands of children who otherwise might not have access to it.
First Robotics: science is now a spectator sport.
Students of science and technology apply their skills through cooperation, competition and teamwork to bring robots to life in a competitive arena.
