Abstract

The Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance (CSLP) is a Montreal-based research centre of excellence that focuses on the generation of new knowledge about education through research and the mobilization of knowledge, working in partnership with educational practitioners by collaborating around the tools, techniques, and strategies for effective teaching and learning. Despite the strong provincial and federal interest in e-learning, there is neither uniform nor substantial evidence its effectiveness – especially without careful attention to the importance of pedagogical features in the design of educational software. There are no quick or effortless technological panaceas for learning, but educational technology can be a powerful tool when it is well designed, carefully validated, and properly implemented. Researchers at CSLP have developed an initial set of state-of-the art knowledge tools as part of the Learning Toolkit (LTK), which promote the development of essential educational competencies, including literacy, numeracy, inquiry, and self-regulation. They are available without charge to supplement and support classroom instruction.
