University leaders and elected officials gathered on the Moscow campus Friday morning for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Doceo Center for Innovation and Learning. The center provides research and cutting edge technology integration resources to teaching professionals across Idaho.
"The reason that we're all here is that technology is such an important piece of what Idaho is struggling with right now," said UI College of Education Dean Cori Mantle-Bromley. "And we want to be part of that solution."
The J A and Kathryn Albertson Foundation funded the center with a $3-million grant. Now that it's up-and-running, the Doceo Center will focus on finding the best ways to use technology as an educational aid, as opposed to a distraction. They're currently focusing on K-12 education across the state, but their finding will be available to educators nationwide.
