Innovation in Education


By bridging the gap between experts in the field of education and local schools and also by making practical resources available, Shanda’s Founders hope to foster meaningful innovation in both teaching and learning models. Their support encompasses everything from elementary and secondary levels through to education at the undergraduate and graduate level.
