Largest Gates Foundation Educational Grants for 2014

In 2014 the Gates Foundation funded two large grant projects of significance to The Maryland Flipped Classroom Study for Higher Education.  This study provides an “innovative professional development system” that enables faculty to create “personalized learning systems” and direct resources more “efficiently and effectively,” as in the Lake County Schools grant project.  This study will also help improve success rates and find greater cost efficiencies and scale the results on a national level, as in the Land-Grant Universities grant project.
