Discover how service-learning can ignite your students’ love for knowledge and develop their skills to be future-ready citizens.
For many years, Microsoft has partnered with WE Schools to help bring experiential service- learning programs to life. Through these efforts, students explore and take action on critical issues—from anti-racism to STEM and the environment—and gain important social and emotional learning skills such as resilience, empathy, and problem solving.
And while service-learning may look different today than it did just a short time ago, technology has enabled students to continue to make a real impact from anywhere. By incorporating technology into their service-learning, students can take their actions even further and amplify their voices globally.
Tech for Good was designed to support educators with free, easy-to-use digital tools to help students give back to causes they care about. The Tech for Good guidebook is a step-by-step guide, aligned to ISTE Standards, that includes real examples of service campaigns and tech tools that can help students expand their impact.
By definition, service-learning is an approach to learning in which students explore problems in their school, their community, and the world, then develop plans to solve them and take action. Service-learning can help young people find purpose—a core component of psychological well-being—and empowers students with the skills, knowledge, and motivation to bring positive change to themselves and the world.
