*****************************************************************************

The Reboot Foundation is devoted to elevating critical thinking. In a time of vast technological change, the Foundation aims to promote richer, more reflective forms of thought in schools, homes, and businesses.

Practically speaking, the Foundation funds efforts to better integrate critical thinking in the daily lives of people around the world. It conducts surveys and opinion polls, leads its own research, and supports the work of independent scholars.

 

The Foundation also develops practical tools for parents, teachers, employers, and others interested in cultivating a capacity for critical thinking.

 

The Reboot Foundation is not a traditional foundation. They find potential partners through their own focused research and they do not accept unsolicited grants.

 

Based in Paris, the Foundation is entirely supported by the generosity of Bruno and Helen Lee Bouygues. All of the resources developed by the foundation are provided without charge.
