Created by Experts
Zoom In was created by Education Development Center, Inc.’s Center for Children and Technology (EDC/CCT), in collaboration with the American Social History Project at City University of New York.
EDC's Center for Children and Technology (EDC/CCT) is a group of media researchers, teachers, and designers, based in New York City, who have been working with schools and teachers to improve the circumstances in which teaching and learning occur, with and without technology, for three decades. EDC/CCT conceived Zoom In’s design; tested prototypes in classrooms; managed the production of lessons, Web tools, and teacher support materials; and conducted a national field study to test its efficacy.

American Social History Project (ASHP) is one of the country’s foremost centers for scholarship and teaching about U.S. history. Based at the City University of New York, for more than 30 years ASHP has written books, produced documentaries, created digital and online programming, and organized teacher professional development programs that expand how people learn U.S. history and illuminate the ways that working people and “ordinary” Americans shaped the nation’s past. ASHP historians and history educators created each Zoom In lesson, informed by the latest scholarship, and grounded in decades of work with history teachers in real classrooms.
