by Kenneth Graves & Alex Bowers — 2018
The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which there is a typology of teachers use technology using a nationally generalizable dataset from the National Center of Education Statistics. We use latent class analysis to identify four significantly different technology-using teacher subgroups, Dexterous (24.4%), Evaders (22.2%), Assessors (28.4%), and Presenters (24.8%), and find that several covariates, such as socioeconomic status, predicted teachers’ membership in these subgroups.

This article uses three commonly cited criteria for evaluating the controversial nature of issues to determine whether educators should frame the issue of marriage equality as controversial following the 2015 landmark ruling in Obergefell v Hodges that legalized same-sex marriage in the United States. An analysis of each criterion suggests that the issue of marriage equality has tipped to the point where it should be taught as a settled issue and that there is no rational reason to consider opposing viewpoints as legitimate within the setting of public K–12 education.

In order to examine the opportunities and challenges of integrating makerspaces into schools, this article focuses on how a new urban public high school created a media production lab to put making practices at the center of teaching and learning. Findings from the study reveal that while the media makerspace helped some students develop, expand, and mobilize audiences and resources using new tools and networks, the making practices of the lab sat in uneasy alignment with the institutional arrangements of school, particularly for students who have been historically marginalized, disenfranchised, or alienated in schools.
