Book chapter examining how unequal access to the internet and technology impacted the school context including teachers, students, parents, and administrators, and how English Learners from immigrant backgrounds navigated this experience. Implications apply to education stakeholders to reduce inequities in online learning contexts.
This article is an introduction to the special issue Assistive Technology Services During and After the COVID-19 Pandemic, which was created to provide a historical record of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the provision of assistive technology services in schools.
Data management plan for the grant, "Distributed Learning for Undergraduate Programs in Data Science at Diverse Universities." Here, we propose to expand on our previous NSF-supported work in developing a suite of courses in data science (DS) that were taught across a network of 4 undergraduate institutions in a distributed learning (DL) format. The current proposal seeks to expand the size and diversity of our network while adapting the advanced distributed learning (ADL) technology of the U.S. military to an academic setting to harness the power of AI in tailoring optimal learning experiences for individual students.
Article provides assemblage maps showing the elements related to creativity, innovation, and creativity and innovation. These assemblage maps highlight virtual and dynamic flight lines that represent potentially active components with varying intensity and direction, which provides a tool for managers and practitioners to identify potentialities for future predictions better.

Article presents a study employing multi-mode stimuli of learners’ eye movements and feedforward that aims to develop the effect of Stimulated Recall (SR) on activating learners’ metacognition in remote settings.
This article is a review of literature for skills comprised within the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) criteria determined 26 topics necessary for the entry-level and continued success of engineers. The findings suggest that although entry-level engineers have proficiency in all of these ABET required skills, the entry-level engineers were not meeting the level of importance expressed by the organization for 24 of these 26 skills.

Data management plan for the grant, "Improving Student Learning While Decreasing Bias in Teaching Through Simulation." Research on the simEquity project which will implement a scalable model for developing equitable, culturally responsive teaching practices through simSchool, a simulated teaching environment. The project will identify best practices to help teachers recognize and mitigate implicit biases that often impact student success. The project team will iteratively develop and test a Teaching without Bias curriculum and an AI-driven set of bias reduction tools that can be added to existing simulation instruction modules.
This article covers the challenges brought about for teachers and learners from transitioning to online education due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors reflect on these challenges based on discussions at EDUsummIT2019 in Quebec about the theme “Learners and learning contexts: New alignments for the digital age." Informed by theoretical conceptualization and empirical evidence the authors identify micro-meso-macro alignments that need to be in place to move education into the digital age: alignments for quality learning contexts, alignments in support for teachers, and alignments through partnerships.
This article provides a content analysis of studies from 2010 to 2020 aiming to disclose how artificial intelligence (AI) has been applied to the education sector and explore the potential research trends and challenges of AI in education. The content analysis shows that the research questions can be classified into development layer (classification, matching, recommendation, and deep learning), application layer (feedback, reasoning, and adaptive learning), and integration layer (affection computing, role-playing, immersive learning, and gamification).

Article reviews opportunities for novel brain-behavior characterizations. Emphasis is placed on the increasing concern of neuropsychology with these topics and the need for development in these areas to maintain relevance as a scientific discipline and advance scientific developments.
Article providing a review of the recent research literature on personalized learning as technology is changing how learning can be effectively personalized. The emphasis is on the terms used to characterize learning as those can suggest a framework for personalized and will eventually be used in meta-analyses of research on personalized learning.
The article focuses on a systematic review of current team effectiveness frameworks and models. A narrative-based method for theorizing was utilized to develop a new MTS team effectiveness framework. This research contributes to the MTS literature by providing a new formula for team effectiveness at both the team level (team effectiveness formula) and the MTS level (MTS team effectiveness formula).

Article examines K-12 students and parents in the United States’ experiences and challenges during the sudden shift to distance learning during the COVID19 crisis. This article is part of the special issue: Learning and learning ecosystems in the time of Covid-19.
This article presents a study that examined how three auditory lectures delivered at different speeds – normal (1.0x), fast (1.5x) and very fast (3.0x) speeds – affected graduate students’ attention, cognitive load, and learning.

Article describes study which examines the relationships between job satisfaction, work engagement, and turnover intention of Career and Technical Education (CTE) health science teachers in the United States (US).
Article evaluates the impact of new media on scientific literacy. Content analysis with a coding scheme was performed on 42 filtered websites and 20 microblogs to analyze the role of new media in disseminating scientific knowledge. The results showed that the quality of science-oriented websites was higher than that of microblogs. Suggestions about how to improve the quality of science-oriented new media and how to develop students’ scientific literacy through new media are also discussed.
Paper presented at the 2019 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition. The research presented studies achievement scores and affinity towards STEM scores of male and female students after participating in a unit focused on understanding a solenoid.
