Keeping Up with EdTech and EdPsych


CONGRATULATIONS to all our students who graduated this spring and will be graduating this summer!

We were honored to welcome the students who made the journey up to campus to walk across the stage at Breslin. Many of the students had never stepped foot on campus until graduation day!

A Message from the Director

Dear Friends,

What exactly is 21st Century Learning? Different people and groups seem to mean different things when they use that phrase. Some see 21st Century Learning as equivalent to integrating new Web 2.0 technologies into the curriculum, while others argue for an increased curricular emphasis on specific skills like creativity and innovation.

Our program was recently a part of a State News article regarding the use of open courseware to provide class materials. You can read more about it at
