Greetings from Melbourne, Australia! Members of School-to-School International’s staff have traveled to dozens of countries in Asia and Africa for work, but this trip marks the first time we have visited Australia professionally.
We’re thrilled to be here for the two-day Digital Innovation for Child Literacy Summit and Showcase. Today, STS president and co-founder Dr. Mark Lynd gave a master class presentation titled “Measuring Impact of Innovative Programs.” Mark shared his expertise about how people can determine how much of a difference their programs are making in people’s lives.
USAID, World Vision, and the Australian Agency for International Development organized the conference as part of their partnership on All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development (ACR GCD). In 2011, the three organizations launched ACR GCD, which funds innovative, low-cost ideas to improve children’s reading skills.
