New NSF Report on “Cyberlearning”

Posted by on Oct 09 2008 | Tools and Resources

The NSF recently released a report titled, “Fostering Learning in the Networked World: The Cyberlearning Opportunity and Challenge”. It is very broad and frames an agenda for STEM education with sections like:

  • Strategies for building a cyberlearning infrastructure
  • Opportunities for action
  • Recommendations: NSDL and ITEST programs

They define cyberlearning as, “learning that is mediated by networked computing and communications technologies. ”

I think there are some real parallels with the kinds of teaching and learning we are trying to foster with the SCOPE project. More on that later.
