The Community Report
The Cyberlearning Community Report: The State of Cyberlearning and the Future of Learning With Technology highlights examples of exciting NSF-funded work by our community as we integrate the latest innovations in learning science and computer science into new research designs and methods. Fundamental questions that unite the research community include:
- How can students use their bodies and minds to learn important 21st century skills such as collaboration, scientific argumentation, mathematical reasoning, computational thinking, creative expression, design thinking, and civic engagement?
- What advances in computation and technology are needed to design, develop, and analyze innovative learning experiences?
- How can learning with technology expand access, equity, and depth of learning across diverse populations, institutions, and settings?
The report, organized by CIRCL and co-authored by 22 members of the U.S. cyberlearning community, addresses such questions, describes six design themes emerging across multiple NSF-funded cyberlearning projects, and highlights methods that researchers are advancing to study and improve these learning designs.
