Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.


GROE Forum in Brighton, England a Major Success

August 10th, 2009 / in workshop reports / by Ran Libeskind-Hadas

Twenty researchers met in Brighton, England July 4th and 5th for the Forum to Envision the Future of Learning.  This forum was part of the CCC’s Global Resources for On-line Education (GROE) initiative.  The meeting was held to coincide with the AI in Education meeting, also held in Brighton.  A list of participants is found on the GROE page on the CCC web site http://www.cra.org/ccc/groe.php.

Under the leadership of Beverly Woolf, head of the GROE initiative, the group discussed the results of the April workshop held in Tempe, Arizona, as well as the next steps for research involving the “road map” that came out of that workshop.

This meeting provided enthusiasm, support, and new ideas for the GROE initiative.  Results of the workshop will soon be reported on the CCC’s GROE initiative web site.
