Congratulations on your scholarship! Within the same area as yours, I studied at two institutions in the US.
In the mid-90s, it was the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR, Centre for Advanced Technology (http://cate.uoregon.edu/)

there retired, but it might worth studying what they can offer. It is a campus with a low-stress environment.
8 years ago I did PhD research for a year at the University of Washington in Seattle, and took various clases at the School of Education, (http://education.washington.edu/areas/)
, which was also very helpful for my project.
Best of luck with the application procedure,
