In the education sector, ABEL unites teachers, students and leaders in order to develop innovative models for teaching and learning that make effective use of technology. As new technologies develop, we provide them to our members as tools and services, offering students and teachers new learning opportunities. ABEL uses a blended approach to professional learning design, making online learning as interactive as face-to-face sessions.

This activity mobilizes knowledge and applies theory that informs public policy.
