19th Annual Brown Lecture

About the 2022 Lecture
Building on W. E. B. Du Bois’s concept of the color line, Diamond’s lecture will highlight how white supremacy is deeply embedded in U.S. educational organizations and the ways that opportunity hoarding helps sustain it. In doing so, he will shift the intellectual gaze from the aspirational progress narratives often associated with Brown to the racial hierarchies and various forms of harm that schools (even integrated ones) continue to reproduce. Taking the recent attacks against critical race theory as a backdrop, Diamond will argue that schools not only contribute to educational inequity but are race-making institutions that socialize people into relations of racial domination and subordination through institutional practices and individual actions. Learn more here.

RRE Volume 48 (2024) Call for Proposals: Educational Side Effects

This would be an interesting call to respond to from a K-12 distance and online learning perspective.  Think about the side effects, particularly negative side effects, of school choice measures on the proliferation of K-12 online learning – especially the proliferation of instances of K-12 online learning that promote negative outcomes.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Educational Side Effects

Review of Research in Education (RRE)

Volume 48 (2024)

 

 

Education researchers and practitioners who design and implement educational policies, practices, and initiatives do so with the aim of attaining specific goals and outcomes. As with all intentional actions, these actions have side effects. Educational side effects are effects that accompany the intended outcomes of educational policies, initiatives, and practices. While some side effects can be beneficial, they can also be adverse, negative, and damaging (e.g., a scripted reading program aimed at improving test scores may result in some children losing their previous interest in self-directed reading for enjoyment).

 

Please see here for the full call and information on how to submit.

 

Deadline to submit proposals: November 1, 2022

 

RRE Co-Editors:

 

Yong Zhao, PhD

University of Kansas and Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne

 

Ronald A. Beghetto, PhD

AERA 2022 – Teachers’ Perceptions of K–12 Online Learning: An Action Research Project in a Graduate Course [RECORDING]

So over the past few weeks AERA has been harassing presenters from their 2022 annual meeting to upload presentation materials to their iPoster session.  The deadline was Monday, and while my colleague did an excellent job of recreating our in-person presentation, the AERA poster session refused to let us embed it (see https://aera22-aera.ipostersessions.com/Default.aspx?s=7B-05-B0-60-5B-D1-CB-99-F8-AF-49-DC-09-34-1A-20 ).

So in an effort to promote her work, here is the video below.

Teachers’ Perceptions of K–12 Online Learning: An Action Research Project in a Graduate Course

American Educational Research Association 2022 Annual Meeting

Thu, April 21, 8:00 to 9:30am PDT (8:00 to 9:30am PDT), San Diego Convention Center, Floor: Upper Level, Room 2

Abstract – The past 18 months have underscored the importance of teachers knowledge of teaching with technology. However, while the number of K-12 learners in traditional online opportunities has continued to increase, online teaching is still absent in most teacher education programs. In this session, we report the fourth cycle of an action research project examining K-12 online learning curriculum. The data generated four themes: the benefits and challenges of K-12 online learning, success factors need for K-12 online learning, growing acceptance of K-12 online learning, and student self-efficacy for teaching online. Recommendations to improve the course included updating the course readings, adding case studies on student anxiety and in urban settings, and a focus on online teacher readiness.
