Digital Promise Makes Improvements to Interactive Map

Making it easier for schools and children alike, Digital Promise’s map and video series streamline processes.

Last year, Digital Promise unveiled an interactive research map to inform education leaders, policymakers, Ed Tech companies, teachers, students, and more on the latest research on any given subject, in an effort to make teaching and learning research more accessible. Now, the nonprofit organization released new ways for individuals to interact with the research.

The data visualization pulls from a database of 100,000-plus peer-reviewed articles from 184 journals published over the last decade. Digital Promise conducted an analysis of the articles and determined more than 120 topics, including student motivation, literacy, online learning, and teacher learning. All of the research map’s topic summary pages have been updated to include new key findings and links to more than 75 resources, according to information from Digital Promise. Users can also navigate these pages easier now using bookmarks.

Since users expressed an interested in using the research in the real world, Digital Promise launched a video series to illustrated research concepts in practice. For example, in the video ‘Improving Math Learning with Technology,’ the representatives from the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International and Teachley share how the mobile technology helps students to receive the right type of feedback (graphic, visual) while learning.

Furthermore, users told Digital Promise they wanted to apply the research to solve specific challenges at their schools and in their classrooms. As the result, the map now includes the “ask a researcher” feature, which allows them to ask experts at the Usable Knowledge project from the Harvard Graduate School of Education more specific questions.
