About Creations for Learning

    Under support from the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Education, we carry out research on teacher and student creativty and intergenerational collaboration and on cyberplatforms for learning that may bring radically transformed experiences in mathematics and science education. This research is carried out by Pepperdine University in collaboration with partners in Los Angeles, Uganda and Kenya.
