Johns Hopkins University Center for Technology in Education
Boundless Learning is one of the many initiatives of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Technology in Education (CTE).
CTE strives to improve the quality of life of all children and youth through teaching, research and leadership in the uses of technology. Whether it is by creating leading-edge online tools, managing data or developing high quality professional development, CTE works in innovative ways to promote high quality teaching and learning. CTE represents a unique partnership that combines the research, teaching and technology resources of the Johns Hopkins University and the leadership and policy support of the Maryland State Department of Education. We at CTE believe that:
- All students can learn. They have a right to appropriate instruction and a right to be in schools that provide it. They have a right to access learning.
- Technology can transform education by providing equal access to the curriculum for all students, enhancing instruction and measuring school accountability.
- Technology-rich, project-based, collaborative teaching and learning help all students to meet high academic standards and prepare for the rest of their lives.
- Schools must respond to the expectations of students, parents and the community.
- Schools must be supported at all levels through partnerships with school districts, state departments of education and institutions of higher learning. CTE supports and engages in many of these kinds of partnerships and has an entrepreneurial spirit vis-à-vis forging new partnerships that can achieve the goals of all involved.
- Teachers, other educators and families can all benefit from being connected via web-based learning communities, through which they share information, resources and other tools, exchange best practices, and stay current on the latest developments in educational technology.
