Research into Practice and Scale-up

SRI's Center for Technology in Learning helps innovators translate research into practice and scale-up in schools, museums, and other educational settings. The Center also integrates educational materials and processes to scale from a few schools to large districts, regions, and states.

In response to specific policy and product development needs, the Center can assemble customized, synergistic research briefings, co-design new products and processes, and design research and evaluation plans that complement efforts to change practice at a large scale.
