Our team designs and evaluates the innovative use of cyberlearning technologies in STEM instructional settings, with the goal of developing and identifying tools and strategies that lead to highly resourced students and teachers. We are a highly collaborative team that works across disciplines and institutions to partner with research institutions and places of learning. A particular focus is helping North Carolina K-12 schools develop the next generation of STEM workers and learners.
