Modern inventions will drive future innovations. Nowhere is this clearer than in the realm of cyberlearning, where technological advances are rapidly changing our traditional beliefs about how people learn in technology-mediated environments.
EDC is helping to foster innovation and communication in the field of cyberlearning through its participation in the Center for Innovative Research in Cyberlearning (CIRCL). CIRCL seeks to connect people within the cyberlearning community and to disseminate findings to the public about new designs for learning through games, virtual worlds, and design-based implementation research.
CIRCL nurtures a sense of community among project staff, investigators, and those new to the cyberlearning field. Activities include the following:
- Convening groups of NSF-funded cyberlearning project leaders to share challenges and lessons learned
- Providing consultation to projects and sharing information about cyberlearning and project findings with the public
- Addressing common needs of the community and amplifying impact through publications and national meetings
