The research performed by the CSLP/CEAP
is directly tied to the general societal need to improve
learning skills to meet the challenges that arise in
the face of rapidly changing technology and the globalization
of knowledge. CSLP/CEAP research aims to develop strategies
and tools to facilitate students' acquisition of general
competencies that foster communication, literacy, numeracy,
and inquiry skills for creative use in educational and
workplace settings. Canada faces the dual challenge
of training and upgrading its present workforce to be
able to compete in a rapidly evolving, global economy,
and to prepare its young people with the broad set of
skills to meet future international challenges. The
primary goal of our research is the advancement of knowledge
and its wide-scale application in order to have an immediate,
direct, and sustained effect on how our schools and
the workplace operate. We are especially interested
in learning how ICTs can be used in this regard.
