Big congrats to Cassandra Scharber, LTML associate director, and Cynthia Lewis, Emma Birkmaier Professor in Educational Leadership, who have been awarded a $599,905 multiyear research grant from the William T. Grant Foundation for a new study! The study, Bright Stars: Technology-Mediated Settings for Urban Youth as Pathways for Engaged Learning, examines the complex features of schools, libraries, and community-based urban settings that successfully engage students by positioning youth as knowledge producers, meaning-makers, and creators of their own learning through the use of digital technologies.
