Investigating how to prepare teachers for the complex, technology-driven classrooms of the future



See The Future First

At MIT, the nature of work in math, science and engineering is transforming around us. Across fields, we can can see how skills like computational thinking, design thinking and systems thinking are increasingly important in academia and in industry. This gives us a unique perspective on what kinds of shifts will be needed in K12 education.

Launching Innovation in Schools

Online and blended learning

Explore the intersections between online learning and teacher education. We’re offering two MOOCs, “Launching Innovation in Schools,” and “Design Thinking for Leading and Learning.” Learn strategies to become a change leader and improve education in your communities.

Practice Spaces

Teachers need spaces to practice teaching strategies in low-stakes settings. We’re drawing on models from games and simulations to create these practice spaces. We seek to establish collaborations with other teacher education programs, school districts, and research institutes to design and test these spaces.

Scheller Teacher Education Program

The Education Arcade and STEP are committed to improving teaching and learning at every level.  STEP provides fun and accessible ways to explore real and virtual worlds, experiment with technology and use games to build math and science skills. The games, simulations and tools developed in the Education Arcade are designed with the educator in mind. They use technology to create powerful learning environments in schools, in the home and in the community.
