LDT program students present their master's projects.
The 16th annual LDT Master’s Project Exposition lets guests explore ideas and prototypes that apply emergent technologies to longstanding learning challenges.The projects on display at the expo are the hallmark of the LDT Master’s Program at Stanford Graduate School of Education, representing the culmination of a year of empirical and theoretical engagement with some of the toughest challenges to learning and education. LDT students devise tools to drive learning at multiple levels. Last year it included new perspectives on lifelong learning, and STEM and literacy education, as well as new technology-enhanced learning environments that expand resources available for non-traditional learning. The 2012 expo, for instance, showcased an approach that uses lessons in computing to help kids to customize their shoes, video games to help children with autism, and another that involved tools to encourage mindful Internet usage for parents and children. A dozen new projects are expected to be on display this year. The LDT Expo is located at the Center for Educational Research at Stanford (CERAS), Stanford University (map and directions below).
