Possible Projects

Social Participation to Promote Education: Imagine if the 84,000 schools in the US each had an online community to challenge students, engage teachers, support administrators, and generate participation of parents. There are successful local examples, but building a widely usable template would accelerate implementation and increase chances of success. Spreading out from pilot projects to a national network of school could raise educational achievement and enrich communities in many ways. Issues of trust, empathy, and privacy would make challenging research topics for dozens of research groups spread across the country would be linked by consortia and collaborator tools.
