Technology for Equity in Learning Opportunities (Telos)

The TELOS mission is to advance equity by creating and investigating ways that technology can increase learning opportunities for PreK-12 learners, families, and educators.

CREDO: Center for Research on Education Outcomes

The Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) is committed to improving the body of empirical evidence about education reform and student performance at the primary and secondary levels.  Established at the University of Rochester in 1999 and relocated to Stanford University one year later, CREDO has become a leading independent voice in the discussion of how to improve education in America, with an emphasis on rigorous program and policy analysis as the means of informing and improving education decision making.

CSET: Center to Support Excellence in Teaching

The Center to Support Excellence in Teaching envisions an education system in which all children are guaranteed high-quality instruction throughout their P-12 experience.

Our mission is to develop transformative professional development programs and generate knowledge about those programs in ways that positively impact instruction, learning, and the profession.

The Center to Support Excellence in Teaching is building resources for teachers, education leaders, and practitioners.

  • Inside Teaching

This website is designed to support a community of learning, which includes teachers, professional developers, and other educators interested in learning and in teaching.

CEPA: The Stanford Center for Education Policy Analysis

The Stanford Center for Education Policy Analysis (CEPA) is a research center created in 2009 to unite an interdisciplinary array of nationally prominent scholars from across the campus to provide the depth and scale of research needed to affect education practice and policy in meaningful ways. Our work is known for its understanding of the educational context, innovative use of data, and rigorous analyses that result in real solutions to real problems.

Stanford Education Data Archive (SEDA)

The Stanford Education Data Archive (SEDA) is an initiative aimed at harnessing data to help us—scholars, policymakers, educators, parents—learn how to improve educational opportunity for all children. We are making the data files public so that anyone who is interested can obtain detailed information about American schools, communities, and student success.

Stanford History Education Group

SHEG is a collaboration among many people: full-time staff, graduate student RAs, practicing teachers, and undergraduate volunteers and interns. SHEG sponsors an ongoing research group for students across the university interested in issues of how history is taught and learned. We also host visiting scholars whose work addresses issues of historical understanding and history education.

Beyond the Bubble

Beyond the Bubble unlocks the vast digital archive of the Library of Congress to create a new generation of history assessments. Developed by the Stanford History Education Group (, Beyond the Bubble is the cornerstone of SHEG’s membership in the Library of Congress’s Teaching with Primary Sources Educational Consortium. We “go beyond the bubble” by offering easy-to-use assessments that capture students’ knowledge in action – rather than their recall of discrete facts. Explore our more than 65 History Assessments of Thinking.

FabLearn Fellows

We bring together experienced educators from around the world to create an open-source library of curriculum and contribute to research about the “makers” culture and digital fabrication in education.

Education’s Digital Future: Equity by design

An open seminar focused on key issues at the intersection of technology, equity and learning. Digital technologies are rapidly evolving and reorganizing the way we play, learn, and work. Significant questions have emerged about how digital and networked information technologies might be both narrowing and widening gaps in access to learning opportunities. It is becoming clear that technology alone will not catalyze the forms of equity that are so essential for preparing young people and their families for a rapidly changing future. Instead we need to deeply rethink and intentionally redesign the social organizations and tools that provide formal and informal learning opportunities (schools, workplaces, community organizations, libraries) and study these innovations. In this seminar, which is both a course and public venue designed to foster new forms of collaboration and innovation, we will focus on questions at the intersection of technology, equity and learning. We have arranged a series of invited conversations with a broad range of stakeholders including researchers, educators, and industry representatives. Institute of Design at Stanford

The is a hub for innovators at Stanford. Students and faculty in engineering, medicine, business, law, the humanities, sciences, and education find their way here to take on the world’s messy problems together.

The K12 Lab Wiki

We believe that creative confidence comes from repeated practice using a human-centered creative process to solve problem scenarios called design challenges. After using the process on these challenges, people will have another tool, the design thinking process, to apply towards solving real life problems.

This is a collection of curriculum created by the K-12 Lab at the design school and teachers who are using design thinking in their schools.

Virtual Human Interaction Lab

The mission of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab is to understand the dynamics and implications of interactions among people in immersive virtual reality simulations (VR), and other forms of human digital representations in media, communication systems, and games. Our work is centered on using empirical, behavioral science methodologies to explore people as they interact in these digital worlds. However, oftentimes it is necessary to develop new gesture tracking systems, three-dimensional modeling techniques, or agent-behavior algorithms in order to answer these basic social questions. Consequently, we also engage in research geared towards developing new ways to produce these VR simulations.

Stanford Prison Experiment

On a quiet Sunday morning in August, a Palo Alto, California, police car swept through the town picking up college students as part of a mass arrest for violation of Penal Codes 211, Armed Robbery, and Burglary, a 459 PC. The suspect was picked up at his home, charged, warned of his legal rights, spread-eagled against the police car, searched, and handcuffed – often as surprised and curious neighbors looked on.

The suspect was then put in the rear of the police car and carried off to the police station, the sirens wailing.
