NASA Langley Research Center
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Langley Research Center is releasing a Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) in support of the NASA Langley Office of Education entitled NASA Digital Learning Network™ (DLN). The CAN will be available upon its release by opening the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/external/ and then linking through the menu listings “Solicitations” to Open Solicitations.”
The overall goal of the proposed cooperative agreement is to manage and support the DLN infrastructure through staffing, operations, and content development/delivery of NASA-related distance learning experiences for students and teachers.
NASA DLN objectives are to 1.) Plan, prepare, produce, deliver, and evaluate NASA-related STEM content modules for students and professional development experiences for educators. 2.) Establish and maintain collaborations with other distance learning professional organizations. 3.) Research and adopt new and emerging educational technologies that address NASA’s eEducation goals. 4.) Provide distance learning services to NASA Education Projects associated with the three NASA Office of Education Divistions: Elementary-Secondary/eEducation, Higher Education, Informal Education. 5.) Promote the DLN at professional conferences, with the formal and informal education communities, and other appropriate partners in order to establish a broad level of engagement in NASA distance learning activities. Proposals from outside the United States will not be considered and all NASA education and training grant funds, as required by 14 C.F.R. Sections 1260.12 (c) (2) and 1260.12 (c) (3), support students and faculty that are U.S. citizens. An organization’s relevant current and past performance will be one of the evaluation criteria for selection (all evaluation factors will be defined in the CAN).
