Synthesis: Impact of integrating innovative technologies in STEM classrooms on K-12 students' STEM career outcomes

This Synthesis project uses meta-analysis and qualitative synthesis to examine the effects of integrating innovative technologies into K-12 STEM education on students’ STEM career-related outcomes, and if and in what ways intervention characteristics and educational settings moderate these effects. To address equity issues in student career development, we specifically study how these effects are different for students who are underrepresented and underserved in STEM. We’d like to disseminate our findings, and our research process, methods, and methodological challenges to benefit the STEM education research and practitioner communities.
