Presenting several current projects at AERA 2019

Updated: Mar 29, 2019



This year will be quite a productive American Educational Research Annual Meeting for me. There will be several activities as a 2018 NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral fellow, including a reception and a session where all of the fellows feature some of their fellowship projects. I am also presenting one of my fellow projects as part of an invited structured poster session for researchers who have done notable research on e-textiles organized by Yasmin Kafai and Gayithri Jayathirtha. Two of my students will be leading a poster presentation, which I am supervising, on one of our recent bidirectionally responsive design workshops with linguistically diverse and majority Latinx youth. Finally, I also will have the pleasure of chairing a paper session and a roundtable session on technologies and informal learning research. Here are some of the sessions and dates:
