The Centre for Education and Technology, IT for Change, seeks to build participatory models that strengthen teacher agency and school autonomy, in partnership with public education systems. Our field projects systemically integrate digital technologies for connecting, creating and collaborating at school, district and state levels. Our research includes collaborative OER models, communities of practice and free and open technologies.

Our research and practice informs our inputs to national and state curriculum programs, as well as the courses we offer with academic institutions. In our advocacy with government institutions and civil society, we critique dominant models that privatize education through outsourcing, or centralize control with bureaucracies and vendors, and espouse the necessity and possibilities for empowering choices of technology in education.
