In the January 2016 Journal of Research in Science Teaching, we publish results of our study in "To Customize or Not to Customize? Exploring Science Teacher Customization in an Online Lesson Portal." We examined teacher customization of inquiry-based science lessons from an online lesson portal and found that students who completed teacher-customized lessons had greater improvements in science content understanding than students who completed non-customized lessons. Check it out!

Revolutionary Digital Learning for Science, Math, and Engineering
Introduction
We're a nonprofit educational research and development organization based in Concord, Massachusetts. Our pioneering work brings the promise of technology into a reality for education in science, math and engineering.

We have a diverse group of innovators who are truly amazing. They are collaborative, creative, and fully dedicated to our core mission. And they combine bucketloads of disciplinary knowledge, educational experience, and technological expertise in marvelous ways, all in the name of showing educational technology's true potential to the world.

Our mission is to stimulate large-scale, technology-based improvements in teaching and learning. Education is the single most important investment a society can make in its future. Quality education is essential to help people everywhere realize their full potential. But education needs enormous changes if it is to deliver on this promise. Its huge size, vested interests, and outmoded traditions prevent change.
