Digital Transformation of Education


NC State University's Digital Transformation of Education faculty cluster builds upon our significant strengths in technological innovation for education and responds to the dramatic changes required in our education systems to prepare students for the lives they will lead in the global, digital world of the 21st century.


The Digital Transformation of Education cluster represents an interdisciplinary effort to realize the full potential of information and communication technologies to enhance learning in formal and informal education settings. Our work addresses issues related to foundational research, classroom practices, and educational policy at every level. This cluster extends and advances the university's well-established, highly successful multidisciplinary collaborations involving faculty and students from the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation; the departments of Computer Science, Psychology, and Communications; and the College of Design.


NC State faculty already working in this area have had significant impact on educational research and development through a large number of studies funded by the National Science Foundation and other grantors. Together with our strong network of school and private-sector partners, we are influential in North Carolina statewide programs and policies, and we are gaining increased national recognition for our contributions to educational advances.
