Our Students

The LDT program draws students from a diverse set of backgrounds. They represent many countries, undergraduate majors, and experiences. Some are former educators, others are from industry, and others still have excelled in the creative arts. What they have in common is a commitment to defining the future of technology in education.

LDT Master's Projects

The Master's Project is an opportunity for LDT students to further develop and apply their learning. Through a learner-centered design process, students identify learning problems and apply appropriate theories about learning to create educationally informed and empirically grounded learning environments, products, and programs that effectively employ emergent technologies in variety of settings.
