RRE Volume 47 (2023) Call for Proposals: The Science of Learning and Development

It would be interesting to see some K-12 distance, online and/or blended learning focused submissions for this call.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Science of Learning and Development

Review of Research in Education (RRE)

Volume 47 (2023)

 

 

Educational and developmental science are at a pivotal moment globally, one fraught with challenges but rich with potential. Educational and social disparities, structural inequities, and the legacies of colonization that challenge many societies have been and will be exacerbated by the impacts of pandemics; global warming; ethnocentric nationalism; attempts to sustain the social, economic, and cultural privilege of a select few; and disrupting economic change. Whereas these challenges are profound, they occur at a time when we know a great deal about both the drivers of inequities and ill-being and the potential for thriving and how to promote thriving. Although we now know a great deal, what we know is limited by epistemological and methodological limitations as well as by intellectual silos, both in education research and across education research, developmental research, and other disciplines and domains.

AERA Statement on the Racist Murders in Buffalo

While this has nothing to do with K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning, it just needs to be shared.

Statement by AERA President Rich Milner and AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine on the Racist Murders in Buffalo

 

May 16, 2022

 

The American Education Research Association grieves for all those who lost their lives, and with all those who lost loved ones, to racist violence in the assault in Buffalo.

 

It is an outrage that racism, compounded by deadly weapons, continues to take innocent lives in our country. It is a further outrage that our society has not been able to transcend this wave of hatred and violence beyond counting and chronicling such unconscionable events.

 

The tragic deaths in Buffalo are part of a systemic problem that we have sadly needed to speak out about far too frequently before, including deadly shootings in Pittsburgh; at Santa Fe High School; at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School; at Sandy Hook Elementary School; in Charleston, S.C.; at Umpqua Community College; and in Orlando.

 

We can and must confront the dangers of systemic racism, white supremacy, and domestic terrorism with evidence-based strategies and solutions drawing upon what we know. Beyond federal leaders wisely examining instances like these as domestic terrorism, we encourage consideration of a federal blue-ribbon commission or high-level task force that brings together experts from relevant scientific and professional fields, including education research, mental health, criminal justice and others, to develop short- and long-term actionable steps.

 

We need to elevate these issues beyond the news cycle so that racism and acts of violence do not further grow and fester across our nation. In any such effort, AERA stands ready to collaborate and help.

 

In addition to this statement, we hope to provide a series of virtual discussions with experts across the disciplines of education to assist researchers as they build robust research agendas to address such violence, and to aid education policymakers and practitioners as they support young people, families, and communities during these challenging times.

AERA 2022 – Preferences, Engagement, and Achievement During Crisis Schooling in the COVID-19 Era (Poster 15)

The final of the K-12 Online Learning sessions from the 2022 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association that I am blogging is:

Preferences, Engagement, and Achievement During Crisis Schooling in the COVID-19 Era (Poster 15)

  • In Event: AERA Virtual Poster Session 9
    In Poster Session: Integrating Technology in Education

Tue, April 26, 4:15 to 5:45pm PDT (4:15 to 5:45pm PDT), SIG Virtual Rooms, SIG-Studying and Self-Regulated Learning Virtual Poster Session Room

Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a near universal shift to virtual crisis-schooling that both laid bare and magnified existing structural inequities. We leveraged administrative, survey, and virtual learning data to examine patterns in familial preferences for virtual learning. We subsequently examined patterns in student attendance, hours logged virtually, and test scores by the proportion of days students attended school virtually using covariate-rich OLS and instrumental variable approaches to elucidate patterns. Some positive associations appeared primarily driven by higher rates of attendance among students attending more days virtually with students identified as Black and qualifying for FRPL experiencing the largest positive associations. Insights from this study can be used to better target and refine virtual learning in a post-COVID-19 society.
