Facilitating co-adaptation of technology and education through the creation of an open-source repository of interoperable code


Co-adaptation of technology and education is a daunting challenge because of the limited resources available to individual researchers. Without keeping ITS systems runnable on the latest computing platforms, the educational technology we develop will become obsolete by default. Without keeping ITS systems current with the latest advances in experimentation and educational research, our educational technology will become obsolete by design. To simultaneously address these challenges, we propose the creation of an open-source research consortium focused on educational code-sharing that will speed the co-adaptation of technology and education, allow for more cumulative progress in our discipline, and result in faster progress for individual projects and researchers. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
