The Center for Technology in Education (CTE) strives to improve the quality of life of all children and youth through teaching, research and leadership in the uses of technology. Whether it is by creating leading-edge online tools, managing data or developing high quality professional development, CTE works in innovative ways to promote high quality teaching and learning. CTE represents a unique partnership that combines the research, teaching and technology resources of the Johns Hopkins University and the leadership and policy support of the Maryland State Department of Education.
Over the years, CTE has honed its expertise in six critical areas: data-informed decision-making for leaders; evidence-based instruction; assistive technology; leadership development; online learning and communities of practice; and emerging technologies and tool development. Today CTE applies its knowledge and skills in these areas in a wide array of programs, projects and research activities that increase the capabilities of teachers, parents, schools and school administrators, with the end result the improvement of education for all children.
