Digital learning tools such as computer games and CAD software emit a lot of temporal data about what students do when they are deeply engaged in the learning tools. Analyzing these data may shed light on whether students learned, what they learned, and how they learned.

Our friends at the Center for Connected Learning and Computer-Based Modeling at Northwestern University just announced the release of NetLogo Web -- a version of NetLogo that runs entirely in a web browser. That means NetLogo Web will run on tablets, Chromebooks and smartphones.

Zoombinis is back! Get hooked on our favorite “strange little logic game” today. Way to go, TERC and FableVision!
Welcome back to Pizza Pass. If you grew up in the mid-1990s or early 2000s, you probably encountered that hallowed imaginary place — as well as the Allergic Cliffs and Stone Cold Caves — at a friend's house

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.
