DELTA faculty seeking students interested in tech in learning environments
Faculty members of the Digital Environments for Learning, Teaching & Agency (DELTA) are encouraging undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in studying digital learning environments to apply for the DELTA program by Dec. 1.
This program is ideal for students who wish to learn more about the potential of technology in learning environments in formal and informal settings, from schools settings to museums and after-school clubs. The program also provides opportunities to explore out-of-school learning opportunities such as educational applications, games, and toys.
DELTA faculty members are engaged in numerous research projects and welcome participation by all students in these projects.
