American Educational Research Association
The American Educational Research Association (AERA), a national research society, strives to advance knowledge about education, to encourage scholarly inquiry related to education, and to promote the use of research to improve education and serve the public good.
In Anji County, Zhejiang Province, China 14,000 children, ages 3 to 6, take part in a highly sophisticated curriculum of self-initiated, self-determined play, reflection and self-expression. Children build bridges with ladders and planks, run across oil drums and construct their environments with bricks and lumber and rope. Every day these same children watch videos of their play and discuss their discoveries and intentions and create complex drawings, schematics and symbolic writing systems. They attend public kindergartens filled with risk, love, joy, engagement and the deep participation of their families and communities. The approach is called Anji Play. The inventor is Ms. Cheng Xueqin.

The Community Robotics, Education and Technology Empowerment Lab (CREATE Lab) explores socially meaningful innovation and deployment of robotic technologies. We specifically aim to:
Empower a technologically fluent generation through experiential learning opportunities in and outside of school. We define technology fluency has the confidence to author/creatively configure technology to pursue individual and collective goals.
Empower everyday citizens and scientists with affordable environmental sensing and documentation instruments, and powerful visualization platforms for sense-making and sharing of gathered scientific data-to promote evidence based decision making, public discourse and action.
Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation
Our Mission is to distill the research on learning for faculty and graduate students and collaborate with them to design and implement meaningful educational experiences. We believe that combining the science and art of teaching empowers our colleagues to create the conditions for students to learn and, through this learning, transform their world.
Fred Rogers Center
Staying true to the vision of Fred Rogers, we help children grow as confident, competent, and caring human beings.
The foundation of every child’s healthy development is the power of human connection. Whether we are parents, educators, media creators, or neighbors, each of us has unique and enormous potential to nourish children’s lives with positive interactions.

International Forum for Teacher Educator Development
InFo-TED is an international forum working to
Promote professional development of teacher educators
General aims of InFo-TED are to...
To develop and implement knowledge bases of teacher educators
Such knowledge bases promote common understanding about the kind of knowledge teacher educators need to have, addresses the diverse tasks and roles teacher educators fulfil, and addresses the diverse contexts in which teacher educators work.
To translate the knowledge bases into an international professional development programme
Such an international programme brings teacher educators across Europe and beyond together to work on core questions about teacher educators’ professional development. InFo-TED is organised as a collaborative programme and designed to build capacity of leading teacher educators who co-develop and evaluate professional development strategies to support the professional development of teacher educators nationally and locally.
To develop and implement supportive guidelines for induction and professional learning programmes
This goal aims at the development of web-based supportive guidelines and principles on how to support collaborative professional learning of teacher educators, taking into account their diverse roles and responsibilities within diverse settings.
To explore how an enduring international supportive structure can be implemented for professional development activities
The purpose of this goal is to explore how the knowledge bases, the study programme, and the guidelines for professional development can be implemented, maintained and further developed on the long term. This goal is about the sustainability.
