Our Vision

Envisioning new learning opportunities



We are a resource to the Tucson community and its school districts. Teachers need first-hand experience with digital tools and research-based strategies for effectively integrating technology in the classroom. We use our digital lab space for community-based events and for ongoing professional development for teachers, educators, and community members. DIALL showcases digital tools and the teaching/learning approaches and practices that surround them. We also provide underserved students with access to innovative digital literacies instruction and mobile technologies within their school context to deepen and broaden their learning experiences


We use this space to conduct innovative and collaborative research related to culturally and linguistically diverse learners and digital learning. These studies take place both in the digital lab space and by bringing mobile technology into schools and community-based organizations. This research increases our understanding of how to best use technology in learning environments and expand teaching possibilities.

Faculty & Students

DIALL provides a cutting-edge instructional space for COE faculty and students to explore and learn about digital literacies and digital learning. Faculty and students learn new instructional approaches for effectively integrating technology into their courses. This space is also be used for faculty and graduate students to conduct their research and showcase their projects. As we prepare the teachers of today and tomorrow, we want them to be learning new approaches and ways to connect to students in a changing digital world
