Simply "to utilize":

"ITU is proud to partner with UNESCO for Mobile Learning Week 2018 to
explore how we can leverage the power of ICTs to ensure inclusive and
quality education for all.”

No implication of "unfair advantage" (as at M-W Online). OED does even
worse.

I've heard the "utilize" sense several times lately.
