Welcome to CIDDL
We are the Center for Innovation, Design, and Digital Learning (CIDDL), a national center to improve faculty capacity to use educational technology in special education, early intervention, related services preparation and leadership personnel preparation programs.
We started a community of higher education faculty members focused on sharing tips and tricks, research-based practices, and strategies for innovative use of educational technology in educator or leadership preparation programs.
This is a place where we build connectedness, share varied opinions, and bring together our knowledge about leveraging technology to support all students.
Network + Connect + Support
"CIDDL will change the culture of tech attitudes, adoption, and use to realize pedagogical promise in terms of practice, outcomes, and innovation." -Dr. James Basham
"We aim to bring together leaders in technology and special education in an expanding human and digital network that allows users to connect, share, learn, develop, ignite, and sustain innovative practices that support all students." -Dr. Jose Blackorby
