Closing the gap between research and education
The Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (J-WEL) has awarded Education Innovation Grants to 14 research projects.
Anjali Sastry, faculty director of J-WEL, says, “Our Education Innovation Grants support MIT research that can improve learning everywhere. We share ideas, disseminate emerging findings, and collaborate with innovators who join us to lead global change in education. Educators in dozens of countries will learn from this year’s inspiring efforts to tackle core challenges in education with innovative new methods and means. Through light-up sneakers, glassblowing, and autonomous vehicles, grantees are enabling learning from curriculum-linked real-world projects, prototyping effective ways to embed evidence-based insights and research into the design of learning experiences, and enabling transitional learners to benefit from high-quality education.”
