Learning Sciences Speaker Series

“From Good Intentions to Real Outcomes: Equity by Design in Learning Technologies” New education technologies are often introduced in tandem with promises to “democratize education.” Unfortunately, the benefits of these new tools often accrue primarily to the already-advantaged. In this talk, Justin Reich will present some of well-developed lines of research that explain why improving equitable outcomes through technology is so challenging, and emerging lines of research that aim at developing a set of design principles for digital equity. Background reading can be found at https://dmlhub.net/publications/good-intentions-real-outcomes-equity-design-learning-technologies/.
