In 1986, the Trustees of Teachers College established the Institute for Learning Technologies with the mission of using digital technologies as an agent of change in education. Since then, ILT has embarked on a number of research projects that explore the learning, understanding and motivational effectiveness of providing visualizations, simulations, animations and physical embodiments to teach math, science, and literacy. ILT has partnered with Harlem Ivy as a STEM education partner since Harlem Ivy's inception in 2008. ILT projects focusing on the learning, understanding, and motivational effectiveness of providing visualizations, simulations, animations and physical embodiments to teach math, science and literacy have been featured at all Harlem Ivy sites for students in grades K-5. This work uses a variety of technologies, including Lego robotics with NXT controllers, Scratch and Pico boards, LEGO MindStorms software, and Flash-based animations.
