The purpose of the Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontierprogram is to fund exploratory and synergistic research in learning technologies to prepare learners to excel in work at the human-technology frontier. This program responds to the pressing societal need to educate and re-educate learners of all ages (students, teachers and workers) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) content areas to ultimately function in highly technological environments, including in collaboration with intelligent systems. This program solicits projects that are exploratory and experimental in nature and that aim to investigate innovative technologies for STEM learning and teaching within the educational and work settings, to include pervasive lifelong learning with technology. 

Encouraged Projects:

  1. Design and develop future learning environments to educate or re-educate workers for new work environments and experiences in collaboration with advanced technology
  2. Develop relevant formal and informal learning experiences as well as just-in-time training on the job
  3. Support the needs of diverse workers from a broad set of backgrounds and experiences
  4. Support the future work of teachers in classrooms and other related settings

Projects must address either learning and educational goals or technology goals.

Project Period: 2-3 years

Funding: Max total of $750,000
