The American Educational Research Association has honored Stanford faculty, students and alumni with awards for their scholarship. Most of the awards were announced during AERA's annual meeting in Washington, D.C. April 9-12. Researchers and practitioners from around the country attended the meeting, where scholars presented new research, delivered lectures on diversity, democracy and equity, and had the opportunity to take part in professional development workshops and network with colleagues.
Paulo Blikstein, assistant professor of education, received the Jan Hawkins Award for Early Career Contributions for Humanistic Research and Scholarship in Learning Technologies.
The award recognizes a body of work that explores and demonstrates powerful new ways to think about technologies in contexts of learning and education, and uses innovative research methods to understand the impact of those technologies. The AERA Division C committee that presented the award said it was "was very impressed with and excited about [Blikstein's] work, and unanimously agreed that the program of research you have established is very deserving of the award."
