When I mention my work with the Center for Innovative Research in Cyberlearning (CIRCL), people often ask, “So, what exactly is cyberlearning?” It’s a good question with a broad answer. Cyberlearning draws on a wide array of technologies, applications, and learning theories to create experiences that improve, foster, and assess learning. The field uses technology to make learning experiences work for specific disciplinary areas and for different populations, and its scope stretches far beyond K–12 to encompass lifelong learning or “K–Gray education.”

Interested in learning more? On October 3 and 4, Digital Promise—which leads CIRCL—EDC, and SRI International will co-host “Cyberlearning 2019: Exploring Contradictions in Achieving Equitable Futures” in Alexandria, VA, our fifth convening of the cyberlearning community. In-person registration is closed, but all are welcome to join in virtually—register here for Cyberlearning 2019 webcasts—and use #NSFCL19 to dive into our online discussions on Twitter.

Whether or not you’ll be able to join the webcasts, I encourage you to explore CIRCL’s website. An important part of CIRCL’s mission is to share cutting-edge work in cyberlearning far beyond the cyberlearning community. On the CIRCL website, you’ll find these features:

Finally, feel free to join CIRCL’s Facebook community, follow CIRCL on Twitter, and subscribe to CIRCL’s newsletter. We look forward to “virtually” seeing you on October 3–4!

EDC Managing Project Director Sarita Pillai is a co-principal investigator of the Center for Innovative Research in Cyberlearning and the principal investigator of EDC’s STEM Learning and Research Center (STELAR).
