Since the launch of SEERNet in fall 2021, we have worked to build the foundation for a network through which platform developers, researchers, and practitioners could engage around a shared vision for leveraging digital learning platforms (DLPs) as research infrastructure. This fall, we welcomed our first research team. Funded through IES’ program Digital Learning Platforms to Enable Efficient Education Research Network, Avery Closser and David Purpura will explore the impacts of perceptual cues in their study Now I See It: Supporting Flexible Problem Solving in Mathematics through Perceptual Scaffolding in ASSISTments. In this two-part blog series, you’ll meet the researchers and learn more about their project.
We look forward to welcoming additional researchers to the network in the coming months. Stay tuned!
