The VITAL digital library.

A VITAL GRANT: On June 7, the National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded $2.3 million to a consortium of the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL), Teachers College and William Patterson University to further develop Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning, or VITAL. This new resource will give prospective early childhood mathematics teachers new tools to improve their understanding of children's mathematical thinking. Frank Moretti, principal investigator and Executive Director at CCNMTL, and Herbert Ginsburg, the Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Psychology and Education at Teachers College, will lead teams that will develop a curriculum, a digital library of primary source material that includes video cases, expert and scholarly commentary, and an online community workspace.
