Cadence Learning gives teachers tools to be effective educators online

Stand Together recently featured Charles Koch Institute partner Cadence Learning in a new video, exploring how a group of committed social entrepreneurs and educators are proving that online learning “doesn’t have to be a disaster.”

In April 2020, a group of educators formed Cadence Learning in order to equip teachers with tools and support to serve learners well online. The organization’s summer pilot engaged 53 schools and networks, serving 12,000 students.

After initial support from Stand Together Trust, Cadence began receiving funding from CKI in August 2020 to fuel the organization’s efforts in the 2020-2021 school year and scale its impact. Receiving $1 million in support, Cadence has grown to serve 20,000 students, and is now formally partnering with school districts in Providence, Rhode Island, and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Charles Koch Institute inspires and invests in social entrepreneurs developing solutions to America’s most pressing problems. Read more about our support for social entrepreneurs committed to education.
