By leveraging research on education and advanced technologies, CRADLE embarks on research in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). CSCL research at CRADLE includes ways of using technology to enhance how students work together to solve complex problems, generate and share new knowledge, and reflect on activities that promote deep learning. In the digital economy, how you work and communicate with others to define goals, set agendas, assess resources and work productively, become just as important as what you know and have already learned.
Current CRADLE CSCL projects include ways of using technology to share and evaluate project work, constructively discuss new ideas, and model expertise within specific fields.
A partnership with University of Toronto has been established to facilitate further technology and theory development. Joint projects with A*STAR are under development.
