Sparking a global renaissance in education

In 2017, Community Jameel and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) co-founded the Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (J-WEL). J-WEL aims to spark a global renaissance in education for all learners, by leveraging MIT’s resources to convene a global community of collaborators for sustainable, high-impact transformation in education through research, policy, pedagogy, and practice.

J-WEL is an incubator for change in education at MIT and around the world. Our approach is to bring together educators, technologists, policymakers, and societal leaders to address global challenges in education through online and in-person collaborations, workshops, and conferences.

Reinvent pK-12 Education

Addressing primary and secondary education will enable us to reach children at the most critical time of their lives, and to prepare them for the future we will leave in our trail amidst economic, political, technological, and planetary change.

Renew Higher Education

Transforming higher education will allow us to prepare the next generation of professionals who are employable, and who can create employment, while also becoming critical thinkers and leaders for the world.

Revitalize Workplace Learning

Our reach to workplace learning will inform us of what educational standards we need to fulfil the potential of the next generation, while also keeping the workforce productive, engaged, and responsive to changing industries.
