About The EdTech Center

The EdTech Center at World Education is home to a collection of projects focused on digital literacy, integrating technology in teaching, blended, distance, and mobile learning. Our mission is to meet the evolving education and training needs of adult learners by providing high-quality innovative services aimed at increasing local staff skills, furthering program capacity, and strengthening state and national efforts.

The EdTech Center supports the work of IDEAL and provides member states with technical assistance for program planning, teacher training, and program evaluation. We develop training materials, online courses, and Web-based research tools that member states use to manage and improve their programs. Center staff develop policy papers on core issues in distance education and promote communication among states through online courses and community building, collaborative conference presentations, research, publications newsletters, conference calls, and an annual institute devoted to sharing best practices and building the skills of state staff involved in distance education.
