NSF Prize Challenge for Innovative Learning Technologies

The National Science Foundation (NSF) launched a $6 million prize challenge for the development of innovative learning technologies for K-12 students, titled the Visionary Interdisciplinary Teams Advancing Learning (VITAL) Prize Challenge. The challenge comprises four steps: concept paper, discovery round, semi-final round, and final round, with the focus on providing interdisciplinary teams the funding and training to build K-12 learning technologies at the speed and scale for adoption nationwide. Applicants can choose one of three K-12 technology translation tracks – Rapid and Continuous Learning Assessment, Mathematical Literacy to Promote a Future STEM Workforce, or Other Innovations in Translational Learning Technologies.
