Framework for Engaging Underrepresented Stakeholders in Education R&D

Educational technology research and development will gain additional levels of perspective with Digital Promise’s launch of the Center for Inclusive Innovation. The goal is to bring in communities of color to participate as “co-creators and collaborators” in educational innovation. The center will be guided by a community advisory council made up of organizers, facilitators, developers, and social change leaders who work on improving educational opportunities for students of color. The council will provide guidance on community-driven design and network building, and participate in local and national R&D opportunities. The initiative draws on work already undertaken by the nonprofit, which published “Designing a Process for Inclusive Innovation: A Radical Commitment to Equity” in 2019. That report examined how to bring “historically marginalized populations such as Black and Latinx students and students living in poverty” into educational research and development. The 2019 report included a simple matrix for understanding how well equity considerations are built into proposed education solutions. The organization has also been working with schools and communities on collaborative projects, including designing for the recruitment and retention of teachers of color and advancing innovation in secondary writing.
