Reboot Foundation

In 2018, after being inspired by watching her daughter learn how to think about the world around her, Bouygues founded the Reboot Foundation[10] to advance education and research in the field of critical thinking.[11]

Reboot funds a number of research projects both in Paris, where the foundation is based, and in the United States.[12] The foundation researches critical thinking education, the impact of misinformation online, and the impact of technology on learning and thinking.

In 2019, it released a report on fake news and media literacy[12] as well as a report on the impact of educational technology on student learning.[13] The foundation conducts an annual survey into public opinion and practices related to critical thinking.[14] Reboot published a book about critical thinking in 2019 called A Parents’ Guide to Critical Thinking.[15]
