Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, IHEs, government agencies, and individuals for exploratory research addressing new educational technologies, and to help learners excel in the human-technology frontier. The purpose of this program is to respond to the critical societal need to re-educate and educate learners of all ages (students, teachers and workers) in (STEM) content areas to ultimately function in highly technological environments, including in collaboration with intelligent systems.

The goal of Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier program is to support transformative advances of technologies for learning to educate a new generation of students, teachers, and workers to excel or re-engage in highly technological and collaborative environments that require foundational STEM content knowledge. An important direction of this program is to foster lifelong learning with and through technology, particularly in preparation for and within the context of the work setting. This program invites transformative proposals that integrate advances in what is known about how people learn (individually and in groups) with the opportunities offered by new and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual or augmented environments to prepare future learners and workers across the lifespan, in formal and informal settings.
