18 May Ed Tech and Students of Color
A report, Research Review: Educational Technologies and their Impact on Student Success for Racial and Ethnic Groups of Interest, was developed in partnership with the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies.
What can we do right now to reduce barriers for students in using technology including redesigning racist structures that exist within our institutions?
Performing a systematic review, we were able to identify research-based practices that can be implemented today to create more equitable learning.
DETA and WCET are excited for the publication release of Research Review: Educational Technologies and Their Impact on Student Success for Racial and Ethnic Groups of Interest.
"The purpose of the review is to identify institutional, instructional, and learning practices mediated by educational technology that positively influence the success of certain racial and ethnic groups of American students, including students who identify as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latinx, Latino or Latina, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Indigenous American, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander. The rationale for the review is to better understand what recent and relevant research-based practices in the educational technology field can be replicated and scaled across postsecondary education in the United States (U.S.) to create equitable and inclusive learning experiences. The objective of this research is the identification of practices and/or interventions that are positively influencing student outcomes (e.g., access, learning, grades, course completion, satisfaction, persistence, and others) for the population of interest to encourage implementation across the WCET community..."
