About the Digital Learning Lab
The Digital Learning Lab (DLL) was founded by Mark Warschauer to use cutting edge approaches for better understanding students’ learning processes, from pre-school to graduate school, as well as to design and develop new tools and resources to improve digital learning opportunities. The development and diffusion of digital media are transforming the terrain of learning in both higher education and K-12 schools. The use of digital media in education is also dramatically expanding the amount and types of data available to analyze teaching and learning processes.
Our three current main projects are Elementary Computing for All, Converse to Learn, and Generative AI in Education.
