My research interests center around the intersection of underrepresented populations and their sociocultural uses of interactive digital media (such as video games) within native learning ecologies. I work toward social change and school equity through promoting civic engagement and empowering learners. Learners should be empowered to navigate their learning pathways through accessible interactive technologies. Culturally responsive systemic approaches can leverage learner engagement to help foster more efficient opportunities for authentic teaching and learning in the New Age of Experience.
