The Digital Lives of African American Students and Families

October 21, 2016

The shortage of young African Americans going into STEM fields is not due to lack of interest in, enjoyment of, or confidence about using computers; rather it’s because of lack of resources to support their aspirations.

Wei LAB director Jerlando F.L. Jackson served as an advisor to the study, which examined the ways African American families use and learn with technology outside formal learning environments.
