MIT STEP offers a teacher licensing program that can be done entirely at MIT or in conjunction with courses at Wellesley College. This program licenses students to teach mathematics or science in grades 5-12. The Scheller Teacher Education Program, offered through the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, prepares MIT students to become teachers who are competent to teach in their field, willing to challenge established norms, able to bridge the boundaries among disciplines, and eager to help students develop the desire to question and explore.

STEP is actively engaged in many research and development projects, designing and testing new learning technologies for use in formal and informal education. While some projects are in limited testing with partners, others are freely available for all to try and to use (some complete with curriculum and assessment). Find out more about these projects on the projects page.

Radix Team Launches Design Blog, Pinterest Board
The Radix Team is busy at work developing the world and quests that will ultimately become the Massively Multi-Player Online (MMO) game and interactive learning environment supporting high school math and biology instruction. As if that is not enough, the team has recently launched a Pinterest Board and design blog that will allow us to see the game come to life. Visit the Pinterest Board to see the graphical concepts evolve. Subscribe to the team’s design blog to follow them as they grapple with critical design questions including which standards to address, how long to make each quest, and how to address the role of free play.
