Center for Technology in Education

The Center for Technology in Education strives to improve the quality of life of children and youth, particularly those with special needs, through teaching, research, and leadership in the use of technology. Through a unique partnership that combines the research and teaching resources of Johns Hopkins University and the leadership and policy support of the Maryland State Department of Education, we address the issues of equal access to the general education curriculum for all students, evidence-based instructional strategies that transform instruction, online learning and communities of practice, leadership that utilizes data to make sound instructional decisions, and application of new technologies in education.
