Federal effort aims to transform learning technologies
from Education Week
Can online graphic novels help teenagers cope with difficult social situations? Are 3-D technologies a tool for helping English-learners acquire language skills outside traditional educational settings? And what about the potential for mobile apps that let students manipulate on-screen images with their fingers to help them learn fractions? A federal program, still in its infancy, is supporting research that seeks to answer those and other questions by wedding partners that often operate in isolation — educational technology and scientific research on learning — with the goal of transforming teaching and learning in schools.
