Connecting the EdTech Research Ecosystem (CERES)
The Connecting the EdTech Research EcoSystem (CERES) is aimed at reducing growing inequalities in children’s learning and development and increasing access to education for children with disabilities. Researchers in the CERES network will study the larger context in which individual learning technologies are used, to design collaborative technologies that expand learning beyond the individual into the larger family, classroom, school, and community.
The network will also study how artificial intelligence can be integrated ethically and responsibly into educational tools that prioritize children’s learning. This work will contribute to a larger body of knowledge on children’s learning and development, establishing a robust evidence-base that can be evaluated in real time, with transparent reporting and metrics, and measurable indicators of impact.
