Project Name:

Theory Meets Practice: A Teacher’s Reality

Lenovo, a global manufacturer of personal computers, has a strong commitment to STEM education. The company strives to assist schools by developing relevant curricula for students at all levels and partners with education organizations locally and globally, including the North Carolina Science, Math and Technology Center (SMT) and the world Economic Forum’ Global Education Initiative, to provide input on solutions for teachers and to stay abreast of current trends in education. Ms. Jiang will work with Michael Schmedlen to learn about the recent trends in education throughout the world and in North Carolina and will bring a classroom teacher’ perspective to Lenovo’ work. She will be able to inform Lenovo’ educational activities and have the opportunity to gain and share a broad perspective on education with other teachers and students.
