Center for Innovative Learning Technologies
January 2005: Read our report, Six years of knowledge networking in learning sciences and technologies. It presents a series of in-depth reflections about the work of the Center for Innovative Learning Technologies.
The Center for Innovative Learning Technologies (CILT) was founded in October 1997 with a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to stimulate the development and study of important, technology-enabled solutions to critical problems in K-14 science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) learning. Four “theme teams” focused the efforts in areas of highest promise. CILT events, often workshops organized by theme, provided a collaborative forum in which people in the learning science community met to assess the progress of the field, define research agendas, and initiate new collaborations. Many of these collaborations form seed grants funded by CILT. In addition to these successful CILT programs, CILT has generated manyresources for the learning science community, including tools, publications, and NetCourses.
