London Connected Learning Centre is involved in education research. Our recent and current research projects include:

Education Development Trust:
Technology-enhanced professional development survey

London CLC is part of Education Development Trust. We are reviewing promising practice in how teachers and educators are using a range of digital technologies to support teacher professional development. We're interested in finding examples of technology-enabled professional development around the world and would like to collect stories of informal and formal approaches in a range of countries and contexts.

If you’re using social media, video, podcasts, portfolios and other tools and methods to ensure children and young people have the best teachers possible, then we want to hear from you.

Please complete this short survey to tell us more about what you have been doing, and if it’s a good fit for our report, then we’ll be in touch to find out more.
