The Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) is a distributed center established in 1997 to serve as a national resource for stimulating research on innovative, technology-enabled solutions to critical problems in K-14 learning. Our approach is to foster and conduct collaborative research and development in areas that we believe promise significant advances in learning.
I have served as CILT Director since its inception, and continue this activity from Stanford in collaboration with Co-PIs Nora Sabelli (SRI International), Marcia Linn (UC Berkeley), John Bransford (Vanderbilt University), and Robert Tinker (Concord Consortium).
CILT has conducted annual open workshops, conferences and partnership projects in the "Theme Team" areas of Assessment, Community Tools, Ubiquitous Low-Cost Computing, and Visualization and Modeling.
CILT Seed grants are given annually to support innovative multi-institutional projects that hold promise for advancing the learning technology field. CILT also supports a comprehensive postdoctoral training program, and CILTKN, a dynamic set of resources about the learning technologies research community.
