Cyberlearning: Transforming Education

The National Science Foundation’s Cyberlearning Program funds research and projects that develop knowledge on how people learn with technology, how to improve this process and how to develop new technologies for this purpose. All proposals must include a research component, a technological innovation (either a new technology or a new way of using an existing technology), measurement of the effectiveness of the innovation and interdisciplinary expertise.

The Cyberlearning program funds several different stages of research and development. They are as follows:

  • Exploration (EXP) – Explore the feasibility of a technological innovation and to shed light on the answers to fundamental research questions related to learning with technology
  • Development & Implementation (DIP) – Ascertain the potential of ideas, develop guidelines for use of an innovation, and answer research questions about learning with technology
  • Integration and Deployment (INDP) – Integrate or extend the use of one or more technologically-sophisticated efforts that have already shown promise and answer a variety of research questions related to learning with technology
  • Capacity Building (CAP) – Partnership building and community building, including conferences, workshops, and short courses
  • Cyberlearning Resource Center – Support Cyberlearning projects and programmatic efforts

Each proposal has different award amounts, lengths and application due dates. For more information, see the link below:
