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.

I'm pleased to announce source-vanished and vanished-games our new outlets for making source code, publications, and assets from Vanished available to the world.
We've only just started filling these sites with content, but you'll already find source code for our Flex-based games, links to our publications, and some how-to's on advanced software development concepts we used. In the months to come, we'll be adding more publications, source code for the Drupal website modifications, and The Curated Game Handbook--our thoughts on the design and implementation of Vanished.
To all those who will be attending Adobe MAX and GDC Online in the next two weeks, we look forward to seeing you there.
