NSF Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier - Solicitation 17-598
Due 1/8/2018

The purpose of the Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier program is to fund exploratory and synergistic research in learning technologies to prepare learners to excel in work at the human-technology frontier.  This program responds to the pressing societal need to educate and re-educate learners of all ages (students, teachers and workers) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) content areas to ultimately function in highly technological environments, including in collaboration with intelligent systems. Innovative technologies can reshape learning processes, which in turn can influence new technology design. Learning technology research in this program should be informed by the convergence of multiple disciplines: education and learning sciences, computer and information science and engineering, and cognitive, behavioral and social sciences. This program funds learning technology research in STEM and other foundational areas that enable STEM learning.

Funding Levels: Projects will be 2-3 years in duration and up to a total funding amount of $750,000.

For more information, visit the program page for NSF Cyberlearning.

Please contact the Bureau of Educational Research as early as possible for assistance.
