In 1996-1997, ILT developed the Reinventing Libraries Project, a pilot program to redefine the role that school libraries can play in sustaining the curriculum with advanced media resources, funded by the IBM Corporation.
ILT has also designed and developed a series of large-scale digital publishing projects–Digital Dante; the New Deal Network (in collaboration with the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute); Seneca Village (in collaboration with the New-York Historical Society); and The Study Place. Dodge Professor of Telecommunications and Education, became co-director of ILT, and in 2005 he became full director.
Beginning in 1996, ILT also began to conduct evaluations of new media and technology projects at Columbia University. Susan Lowes, Associate Director of ILT and Director of Research and Evaluation, ILTís evaluation work has grown to include a wide range of projects at both the K-12 and university levels, in-school and after-school, with a focus on curriculum projects in which universities work with K-12 educators to develop and test curricular interventions that use new technologies effectively in teaching and learning. Since then, ILT has embarked on a number of research projects that explore the learning, understanding, and motivational effectiveness of providing visualizations, animations, and physical embodiments to teach math, science, and literacy.
