IES Releases Education Technology Compendium
Education technology supports teaching and learning for students at all grade levels and across various subjects. Since 2002, the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) funded over 400 projects focused on education technology.
A new compendium is now available and provides information about current and completed education technology projects funded by IES’s two research centers—the National Center for Education Research and the National Center for Special Education Research. The compendium is designed to provide information on completed and current projects in an easily accessible and usable format.
With IES funding, researchers have developed or studied technologies for classroom, school, and education research purposes, including more than 270 web-based tools, 85 virtual environments and interactive simulations, 95 intelligent tutor and artificial intelligence software systems, 50 game-based tools, and 105 computer-based assessments.
For additional information, please view A Compendium of Education Technology Research Funded by NCER and NCSER: 2002-2014.
