The California STEM Learning Network (CSLNet) today announced a joint partnership between Google, California State University and CSLNet as part of Obama’s “100Kin10” campaign to bolster STEM education nationwide.

Their joint Transforming STEM Teaching and Learning through Technology (T2L2T) initiative will support beginning science and math and elementary teachers in STEM through an online professional learning community, a graduate credit transferable to a Master's Degree in order to foster teacher leadership, and the sharing of high quality OER to help address the absence of science labs, equipment, and supplies in many California schools.

The announcement came at the 2012 California STEM Summit, a statewide leadership convening of business, government, education, nonprofit and philanthropic luminaries to spark change in STEM education and workforce development and launch new STEM education initiatives.
