Welcome to the website of Concepts for Adaptive Learning (CfAL). We are an independent, non-profit organization, based in New Haven, Connecticut that has been serving urban communities since 2003, by giving educational technology services to families and schools.
CfAL exists solely to help measurably improve the academic achievement and learning outcomes of disadvantaged children attending the worst performing school districts in Connecticut. We strive to achieve this goal by integrating technology in education, and eliminating the technology gap between families that have and do not have technology in the home, one family at a time.
Our organization is unique in that CfAL uses the resources of technology to educate teachers, students and parents, as its foundation for improving learning outcomes.
Since 2003, some of our accomplishments include having:
- Instructed nearly 90 teachers in the use of technology
- Given computer training and computers to more than 3,500 parents, living in the poorest neighborhoods of Bridgeport, Hamden, Hartford, Meriden, New Haven and Waterbury
- Delivered a summer math program the past 3 years for underperforming 3rd thru 5th grade students
- On behalf of the Connecticut Commission for Educational Technology, delivered training and computers to more than 1,900 families living in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and Waterbury
CfAL has established a reputation of helping close the “digital divide” and improving public school children’s education.
Please know that we give our educational technology services through the support and generous donations from foundations, businesses, individuals and volunteers, as well as an annual fundraiser.
