About Google in Education

At Google, we believe in the power of the web to help people discover, connect, and learn. Education lies at the very core of our company’s mission “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.”

Leading-edge technologies will play a vital role in helping equip future generations with the skills they need to thrive in the workforce of today and tomorrow. That is why we support collaborative learning in communities around the world, and why we invest heavily in education programs initiatives and partnerships through our products and tools.

Our education initiatives focus on three key areas:

  • Making learning magical
  • Empowering innovative communities
  • Building a foundation of technology and access

Last year, Google was instrumental in providing access, resources, financial assistance and innovative products to more than 15 million students and teachers in more than 140 communities worldwide.

We hope that through our continued efforts, we can help raise the level of excellence, awareness, and access in education for future generations of students, teachers and innovators.
