Working with Blinders On: A Critical Race Theory Content Analysis of Research on Technology and Social Studies Education
Marri, Anand R.
Multicultural Education & Technology Journal, v1 n3 p144-161 2007
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present a critical race theory content analysis of research on technology and social studies education. Design/methodology/approach: This study, using a critical race theory (CRT) framework, investigates how social studies education scholars have critically addressed the intersection between technology and race/ethnicity through a content analysis of articles in the journals Theory and Research in Social Education (TRSE) and Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE) since 1990. Findings: This paper contends that the interaction between technology and race/ethnicity is rarely critically examined in these two prominent social studies education research journals. Originality/value: In light of this neglect, the paper discusses the need for an in-depth analysis of the reification of low-level pedagogical methods with racial/ethnic minority students, an unexplored area of research.
