The Great Online Migration

We started this project started in Spring 2020, broadly interested in the digitization of schools and the aftermath of remote learning over COVID-19. Since then, we’ve interviewed teachers and school board members on the pandemic learning experience, collected data on virtual academies/remote learning across the US and globally, and studied changes in edtech budgets. This summer, we will be studying edtech platforms in-depth and conducting more interviews to further our understanding of the digital learning landscape.

I wanted to thank you so much for making my summer research experience possible. I am deeply committed to this project; it will be my fourth semester working on it, and I am so excited to be able to explore it more deeply over the summer.
